Celebrate St. Patrick's Day 2019 a Little Early with MCTS & Miller Lite Free Rides


MILWAUKEE — We're inviting you to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2019 a little early with Miller Lite Free Rides and the Milwaukee County Transit System!

Miller Lite Free Rides will be available on all MCTS routes starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, 2019 until the end of regular service. (Let's be real: most people will be celebrating on Saturday night since the actual St. Patrick's Day holiday falls on a Sunday this year!)

“Anyone heading out to celebrate the holiday a little early, on Saturday night, can take advantage of safe, convenient and free transportation,” said Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. “Folks can choose to leave their keys at home and instead count on MCTS and Miller Lite Free Rides to get around safely."

The Original Lite Beer, Beer Capitol Distributing and MCTS have teamed up to provide safe, alternative transportation as part of Milwaukee’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for nearly one million people over the past 26 years.

“We are asking consumers to have good taste by celebrating responsibly. And they can do that by enjoying Miller Lite Free Rides on MCTS,” said Diane Wagner, Alcohol Responsibility Manager for Miller Brewing.

“We’re proud to partner again with Miller Lite and MCTS on this longstanding tradition in Milwaukee,” said Dave Neville, Chief Executive Officer for Beer Capitol Distributing. “We want people to have a great time celebrating responsibly. Miller Lite Free Rides is an easy and safe alternative to driving.”

Heading out on Friday or Sunday instead? A regular ride on MCTS costs just $2.25 cash or $2 using the Ride MCTS app or M•CARD. That's a lot less than the price you'd pay for driving intoxicated.
