Metro is altering its schedule for the Christmas holiday.

Metrorail hours began at 7 a.m. Friday and will extend to 3 a.m. Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day.

Buses will operate on a Sunday schedule beginning Friday and ending Sunday.

Meanwhile, D.C.'s Department of Public Works has an early Christmas gift for motorists: free parking. Spokeswoman Linda Grant confirms no expired parking meter tickets will be written Friday or Saturday. Residential and rush-hour parking restrictions will also be suspended.

However, Metro police warn they will still hand out tickets for core violations like parking in an emergency zone or in front of a fire hydrant.
