For many, New Year’s Eve is an occasion to raise a glass in celebration of new beginnings and of making resolutions for self-improvement. Whether you decide to raise one glass or several, hopefully your resolutions include traveling safely and responsibly. For the past 15 years Miller Lite has sponsored its Free Rides program in the Twin Cities on St. Patrick’s Day in an effort to prevent drunk driving by providing a safe transportation alternative. And now Miller Lite Free Rides are returning to the Twin Cities for New Year’s Eve!
Miller Lite Free Rides will be available Saturday, December 31st on all bus and light rail routes operated by Metro Transit, Metropolitan Council or Minnesota Valley Transit Authority, as well as the Northstar commuter train, from 6 p.m. until the end of service.
