The lines will run on regular Saturday schedule on New Year's Eve in addition to the 24-hour service, but on the holiday/Sunday schedule on New Year's Day.

Fare gates at all rail stations will be unlatched during the free service.

The Downtown Long Beach Blue Line Station, however, will be closed from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. during the holiday because of New Year's Eve celebrations in the area.

Those who take Metro to Grand Park + The Music Center's N.Y.E.L.A. and present their TAP card can receive a free glow stick.
