As 2023 comes to an end, the holiday festivities in San Francisco are just beginning. Muni is your ride to the Union Square Christmas Tree, Ice Skating Rink and the return of Winter Walk.  

The holidays at Union Square are a San Francisco tradition, and all of its festive attractions are easily accessible by Muni. Take Muni to Union Square to enjoy the iconic Christmas tree and ice-skating rink through Jan. 15 or take a stroll through Winter Walk and its wonderland design through Dec. 24. Enjoy Winter Walk's entertaining shows, food trucks, shopping booths and more, all making their festive return from a 5-year-break. Union Square is accessible through the Union Square/Market Street and Powell stations, as well as many other Muni lines that make it easy to get to.  

We are also excited to continue our tradition of free Muni rides on New Year’s Eve starting from 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31 through 5 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 1. Clipper Card customers should not tap their cards to make sure they don’t get charged a fare, and Muni Mobile passes will not be necessary. We are happy to provide this free Muni service as part of our ongoing commitment to Vision Zero. Plan your travel to ring in 2023 at our New Year’s Eve Travel & Transit webpage ( 

Riding transit is the safest way to enjoy the holiday season and its events. Taking Muni lets you and your loved ones celebrate without the hassles of traffic and parking.
