Muni offering free New Year’s Eve rides

New Year’s Eve revelers will be able to enjoy free rides on all
San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) lines and routes from 8 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency said.

Passengers should not clip their Clipper cards or activate their
MuniMobile tickets during the free service period.

Additionally, extra Muni Metro service will be offered between the West Portal and Fourth and King streets stations from 9 p.m. until 2:15 a.m.; and between the West Portal and Embarcadero stations from 2:15 a.m. to 4 a.m. Extra service will also be offered on Muni’s late-night Owl routes.

A city-sponsored fireworks show will be held at midnight off The
Embarcadero, south of the Ferry Building. Traffic delays are expected from approximately 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., but no closures or reroutes are planned.Transit
