New Year's Eve revelers can take a breather after the clock strikes midnight: BART will be running late-night trains for commuters (and drunks) who have to make the trek back home from San Francisco after a long night of partying.

BART plans to provide regular service until 3 a.m. so everyone can ring in the new year, with trains running every 20 minutes after midnight.

According to its website, BART trains will run on a skip-stop schedule that night, with every other train passing by Montgomery or Embarcadero stations without stopping.

Muni has not made any public announcements regarding its service plans for the holiday, but if the agency holds true to a 14-year tradition, trains and buses will be free to ride from 8 p.m. New Year's Eve until 5 a.m. the next morning.

Late-night public transportation options are limited in San Francisco year round, but the schedule extensions this year follow on the heels of plans by BART and AC Transit to introduce a new bus line to shuttle commuters on weekends between 1 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. on the regular.

It's good news that the cogs of our City by the Bay are finally shifting to accommodate night owls (that'd be you).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
