New Year’s Eve celebrants will be able to get a free ride Friday night on SF Muni, and BART and other transit services are providing extended service for the holiday.

The complimentary New Year’s Eve service on Muni runs from 8 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Saturday, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials said.

At midnight on New Year’s Eve, there will be a city-sponsored fireworks show from a barge off The Embarcadero, south of the Ferry Building. Starting around 10 p.m., Muni will reroute around the area and return to normal service once streets are clear.

BART, with full fare pricing in effect, will run standard Friday service, but with an extended closing time to accommodate riders enjoying fireworks and other festivities. The last East Bay-bound train running through downtown San Francisco will be at around 1:30 a.m. and the last southbound train heading toward Millbrae will run through downtown San Francisco at 2:10 a.m.
