I have excellent news: Rapid After Dark (RAD), the late-night Rapid Ride program started last summer, is back. Between now and Labor Day (first Monday in September), on Friday and Saturday nights, you can catch a ride on the bright red bus until 3 a.m.

The Rapid Ride route runs along Central from Unser to Wyoming, and then north on Wyoming to the Uptown shopping district. There are free Park & Ride locations at both the Unser and Uptown stops. Fare is the standard $1, or you can also get on with a monthly bus pass. Service will be every 10 minutes until 8 p.m., and every 20 minutes between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m.
