The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will be providing
free rides from 8 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday in an effort to
prevent people from driving drunk as they celebrate the New Year.
As an additional incentive to encourage people to leave their
cars at home on New Year's Eve, MUNI will also be adding extra
service on some lines.
Metro lines will operate on their regular weekday schedule until
about 1 a.m. Between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. on New Year's Day, MUNI's
Owl Lines, which include the 5, 14, 22, 24,38, 90, 91, L and N,
will run every 15 minutes.
Caltrain, Bay Area Rapid Transit and AC Transit will also be
adding extra trains in the early morning hours, officials reported.
Caltrain will operate on a weekday schedule, but will add additional
trains at 12:45 a.m., 1:30 a.m. and 2 a.m.
BART will be adding extra trains for the holiday and stations
will remain open until about 4 a.m. Tuesday.
AC Transit will be providing service all night on its 800 line
from selected stops on Market Street.
SamTrans will be providing all-night service on its 397 route
to the peninsula, and Golden Gate Transit will be providing service
after midnight on its route 70, transportation officials are reporting.
