METRO Bus Shuttles

METRO buses and city trolleys run the First Night Loop all night long - FRE. ( the city trolley loop extends to the Northside District). Stay warm while traveling from site to site by getting on a METRO bus at any First Night site or journey along the loop from 6-11:30 p.m. 

Jump on a bus in front of Canal Park after the midnight fireworks to get a ride to the parking lots and garages. METRO service to Downtown is free with your First Night Button after 4 p.m. on December 31. The last zoned buses will depart from the Robert K. Pfaff Transit Center at 1:00 a.m. (limited routes serviced at this time), so plan your excursion accordingly. 

Call METRO Customer Service at 330-762-0341 for details.
