Free Rides New Years Eve...what's the catch?
1. New Year's Eve was on Saturday. WES doesn't run on Saturdays.
2. WES doesn't operate after 8:00 PM. The last train of the day leaves Tualatin at 7:52 PM and arrives in Wilsonville at 8:02 PM. So...if you can somehow board the train just two minutes north of the Wilsonville station stop, then you can ride those two minutes for free.
3. Even if you left Wilsonville for Portland to celebrate...then what would you do? SMART did not run any service at all on New Year's Eve, doesn't run at all on Sunday...so you'd have to pay for a very expensive taxi ride back home to Wilsonville.
