TriMet buses, trains free for New Year's Eve revelers

People celebrating the new year can catch a free ride home Monday night and early Tuesday morning on TriMet buses and trains.

The free rides begin at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31, and continue until the last MAX train leaves downtown at about 3 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1. MAX Blue, Green and Yellow line trains will continue running until then with service about every 35 minutes.

MAX Red Line trains will not extend past regularly scheduled hours, however. After service ends, shuttle buses will be available to take riders between the Gateway Transit Center and Portland International Airport until about 3:30 a.m.

On New Year’s Day, buses and MAX trains will run on Sunday schedules. Other TriMet offices will be closed for the holiday.
