The free rides will be offered on Breeze buses, the Sprinter light rail and Coaster trains, transit officials said.
For the second year in a row, an extra Coaster train will be added to the scheudle and will begin departing from San Diego’s Santa Fe Depot at 12:45 a.m.
The Sprinter train is also scheduled to run an extended service between Oceanside and Escondido on the hour, according a media release. The service will begin at 5:33 p.m. in Oceanside and 6:33 p.m. in Escondido.
San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System is also offering extended trolley service in order to help North County residents make it to the city by adding locations.
