    The free rides will be available beginning at midnight on Jan. 1, with free service until 3 a.m., WMATA said when announcing the partnership earlier this month.

    Metrorail riders should enter and exit the system using either their SmarTrip cards or paper farecards as usual -- but during those hours, they won't be charged for the trip, WMATA said.

    Metrobus riders just need to show their SmarTrip card to their driver to board for free.
