Free bus rides on New Year’s Eve

For the second year in a row, King County Metro will make all bus trips free for New Year’s Eve riders.

The free service will start at 7pm on Dec. 31, and end at 4am on Jan. 1. The Seattle Streetcar will also be free, and Sound Transit Link light rail will be extending service to 2am on Jan. 1.

Metro will also add buses to its night routes to popular areas such as Seattle Center, Capitol Hill and downtown.

“As we ring in another new year together, we are glad to again offer free rides on Metro to help keep the celebration safe for everyone,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said in a statement.

All buses will be on the Sunday and holiday schedule for New Year’s Day.

I think it is great that Metro does this because hopefully it will allow some inebriated person to get a free ride home and not drive their car.

We deleted a comment (which also deleted the ensuing thread) that broke several of our comment rules: http://www.myballard.com/comment-rules/

1. “Be respectful”
2. “Do not disrupt comment threads”

Repeat behavior will result in banning the account.

Your definitions are arbitrarily enforced and quite absurd. The only policing in this city is TONE POLICING. Comedy. Tell me Swedes, are you happy with Seattle 2018? Be honest. Censoring people won’t make the junkie hobo zombie hordes vanish.

This troll continues to be disrespectful, and is still disrupting comment threads. Awaiting his ban.
