PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Port Authority will offer free rides to children on New Year’s Eve.

The free service will begin at 4 p.m. on Dec. 31 for children ages 6 to 12-years-old. Children must be accompanied by an adult wearing a First Night pin, according to a post on Twitter.

Riders within the age range will receive free service until the end of service that evening.
