Sacramento Regional Transit will offer free light rail service on New Year's Eve. It starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday and lasts through the end of service that night.
SacRT spokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez said unlike system-wide free-ride days, this one is a bit different because it targets a sponsored event.
"This one's a partnership with Visit Sacramento to offer those free rides for people to come out and celebrate and enjoy the New Year's Eve Spectacular," said Gonzalez.
Gonzalez said the free rides are intended for people to head to the Old Sacramento waterfront for the fireworks show, but passengers don't need to be headed that way to ride for free. The offer does not apply to SacRT busses.
Riders will need to show a flyer, which you can either print or show on your phone. You can download the app or the flyer at the SacRT website, or print the flyer below.
Fireworks are scheduled for 9 p.m. The last Gold Line train traveling toward Sunrise/Folsom will leave the 7th & Capitol Station at 10:54 p.m. The last Blue Line train traveling toward Cosumnes River College will depart the 7th & Capitol Station at 11:16 p.m., and the last train traveling toward Watt/I-80 will depart the 9th & K Station at 12:32 a.m.
