Katy Perry New Year’s Eve festivities included riding the New York City subway. The singer took the A train in Manhattan with a group of friends, amid a night of year-end partying. 

“A train squad game strongé,” Perry captioned an Instagram snapshot of herself and friends sitting on the subway. Most of the night wasn’t spent riding the rails, though, but at pal Rita Ora‘s New Year’s bash. The British star hosted a black-tie affair at The Standard’s West Village venue.




Ora also performed at the event, taking the stage just before midnight. She documented the evening on Instagram, before, during, and after the shindig, sharing her excitement over celebrating with her “sexy b*tches.” On Thursday, she declared it was the “#BestnightEVERR.”

Before the fun got underway, Perry amusingly tweeted:

Both Perry and Ora are starting a huge year. Perry is slated to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in February, the same month Ora stars in Fifty Shades of Grey. Perhaps 2015 will also include more subway rides.
