Christmas Eve parties are in full swing, and the Metro wants to make sure you get home safely.

Free rides were offered from 9 p.m. on Saturday until to 2 a.m. Christmas morning. The rides are good for Metro buses and trains- including the red, purple, blue, gold, green, and orange lines.

The free service doesn't apply to Metrolink trains.

Metro will offer the free rides again on New Year's Eve. Typically they are the two worst nights for drinking and driving.
