On New Year's Eve, LA County Sheriff's Department Transit Services Bureau wants you to resolve to stay safe

With New Year's Eve just days away, we get ready to say goodbye to 2022 and welcome 2023. The LA County Sheriff's Department Transit Services Bureau wants you to stay safe during your celebrations.

Here are just a few tips to help you so that you can ensure a good time:

HAVE A PLAN - Make plans to get to and from your celebrations safely.
KNOW WHERE YOU'RE AT - Make sure you're well aware of your surroundings, especially if you plan on attending a large gathering.
CONTINGENCIES - Plan for the unexpected. Have phone numbers saved that you can reach out to for help.
KNOW YOUR LIMITS - Keep track of your celebration. Especially if you plan on having an adult beverage or two.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR PETS - With fireworks and other loud noises, make sure your pets are safe and, when you can, keep them indoors.
WATCH YOUR MONEY - Before you go out, think about taking only a small amount of cash, one credit card and your ID. Leave you wallet or purse at home.
HAVE A DESIGNATED "WATCHER" - Even if you plan to "Go Metro" or use other public transit, have a person in your group designated to watch over everyone and ensure a safe trip.
DON'T GO IT ALONE - Plan to go out with family and friends and stay with your group. Let someone know where you're at and when to expect you home.

Please follow these safety tips and, as always, use your best common sense. Make a New Year's resolution to stay safe in 2023!

Metro will be providing free bus and train rides on New year's Eve. Go to for more info on hours of operation, etc.. If you need to contact law enforcement while riding Metro, please call 911 for emergencies, or (888) 950-SAFE (7233) for all other non-emergent law enforcement matters.

We remind our Metro patrons and the public that they are our best sources of timely, relevant, information.  If you “See Something” on the transit system that doesn’t look right to you, “Say Something” by calling the Metro Transit Safety and Security line at (888) 950-SAFE (7233), or you can download the newly updated LA Metro Transit Watch App to report crime or any problems from your smartphone.  Remember, if you see crime in progress or any other emergency, dial 9-1-1.
