Metro to Stay Open Late on New Year's Eve



    Metro Extends Hours for New Year's Eve

    Metro usually closes at 11 p.m. on Sunday, but for New Year's Eve, the rail system will extend its hours. Metro says trains will run until 2 a.m. to help New Year's Eve revelers get home. News4's Adam Tuss has more. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017)

    Metro announced trains will run until 2 a.m. on New Year's Eve to safely bring revelers home.

    There is also no maintenance work scheduled after 6 p.m. on Dec. 31 or on New Year's Day.

    Trains will run three hours later than they typically would on Sunday, Metro said. Last departure times vary by station. You can check when the last train will depart each station online.

    Off-peak fares will be in effect and parking will be free at all Metro lots, officials say. On Sunday, Dec. 31 and Monday, Jan. 1, trains will operate on a Sunday schedule.

    Last year, Metro ran until 3 a.m. because of a sponsorship deal.
