Consider this Metro's Christmas present to commuters and holiday revelers: free rides starting at 9 p.m. Monday through 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Aside from being altruistic, Metro’s free fare aims to reduce holiday traffic as well as drunk driving.

The fare forgiveness applies to all Metro rail lines, including Foothill transit, according to Metro. Buses and trains are operating on a regular Monday schedule for Christmas Eve. They will run on a Sunday schedule on Christmas Day.

And the gift doesn't stop at Christmas.

Commuters will be able to ring in the New Year with complimentary fare between 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 2 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2013. Metro Rail will run all night New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day, but the gratuitous rides only last ‘til 2 a.m.
