New Year’s Eve celebrants will be able to get a free ride Friday night on S.F. Muni, and BART and other transit services are providing extended service for the holiday.

BART, with full fare pricing in effect, will run standard Friday service, but with an extended closing time to accommodate riders enjoying fireworks and other festivities. The last East Bay-bound train running through downtown San Francisco will be at around 1:30 a.m. and the last southbound train heading toward Millbrae will run through downtown San Francisco at 2:10 a.m.
