Those who ride Los Angles County’s rail lines soon will be able to stay out a bit later. Transportation officials announced this week that all Metro rail lines will run until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Riders on the Blue, Green, Gold, Red, Purple and Expo Lines soon will be able to catch a train every 20 minutes between midnight and 2 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The Orange Line busway in the San Fernando Valley will run until 2:40 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

It is unclear exactly when the new policy will go into effect, but according to Metro’s blog the Source, the current plan is to begin the new service on July 27.
