Start the new year by experiencing new things in the city. If your weekends have been
spent doing errands and then binging on Netflix, resolve to discover new places
this year. Explore the Asia Society of Texas museum and hear an artist talk
about her work. Check out new plays from African-American playwrights in a
reading series.

And for the youngsters, take them on a family-friendly ghost tour - right in the
heart of downtown.

Ride METRO to explore all these new places and things. We'll make it convenient and
economical for you to get around - plus, no worries on parking or texting while
driving. Use our Google-powered Trip Planner to find the
specific bus from your starting point.

Then go out and celebrate the new year with new places to go and things to do. If
you're near the Red Line, use your METRO Q® Fare Card to get discounts
at our Rider Rewards restaurants.
