If you’re feeling a little tipsy New Year’s Eve and find yourself low on cash, the Orange County Transportation Authority has your back.

The OCTA will be running buses on its fixed routes for free between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Passengers planning a bus ride are encouraged to use the online trip planner in advance at octa.net or call (714) 636-7433, according to an OCTA press release.

 “We are happy to do the driving and to provide a convenient, safe way to travel at the start of another year,” said OCTA Chairman Greg Winterbottom. 

This is the 12th year OCTA has offered free rides for the holiday. Last year, more than 10,000 riders used the free bus service on New Year’s Eve. More than 130,000 have used the service since it began in 2002.
