Metro will stay open until 3 a.m. on New Year's Eve and will not schedule maintenance work on the rails over the Christmas or New Year's holiday weekends.

"We are pleased to offer special late-night rail service again until 3 a.m. on New Year's Eve," General Manager Paul Wiedefeld said in a statement posted online. "I view this as an important public service for the benefit of riders and the communities we serve."
