(AP) — Who says there's no such thing as a free ride?

Mexico City's mayor says a baby boy born in one of the city's subway stations will be allowed to ride the trains free for life.

The baby's 22-year-old mother was trying to take the subway to the hospital when she went into labor Tuesday.

Subway employees, police and paramedics helped her give birth in an entryway to a platform.

Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera wrote in his Twitter account late Tuesday the yet-unnamed boy will have the right to ride the subway free for life.

Subway tickets in Mexico City cost three pesos (25 cents) for an unlimited ride.
