The CTA will offer penny rides so people get home safely from their New Year's Eve celebrations.

The one penny fare for train and bus rides begins Friday at 8 p.m., and will last until Saturday at 6 a.m.

Officials say several bus and rail routes also will have later service hours to accommodate for the holiday and offer a safe option for travelers.

Chicago transit officials also say service will operate on a regular weekday schedule on a Sunday or holiday schedule on Saturday, New Year's Day.
