Molson Coors is encouraging those celebrating St. Patrick’s Day to plan their free and safe ride home through its 2022 Miller Lite Free Rides program.

In partnership with local mass transit, participants in Milwaukee County can ride the bus for free, beginning at 6 p.m. until the end of regular service.

“We encourage all to celebrate responsibly this St. Patrick’s Day. Our Miller Lite Free Rides program promotes responsible consumption and a safe ride home,” said Tami Garrison, community affairs director.

“Providing safe, free transportation is just one of the ways Molson Coors is working toward giving back to the communities where we work and live.”

Miller Lite and Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) have been partnering for St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve Free Rides programs in Milwaukee for the last 35 years and have provided a safe ride home to nearly 1 million people in the metro area.

Since the start of the program, more than eight million people have gotten home safely during major holidays on the bus, rail or train systems in cities across the country through Free Rides.

This year, the St. Patrick’s Day program will resume after pausing the past two years due to COVID-19, and will serve those celebrating in both Milwaukee and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

“We are proud to partner with Miller Lite on its Free Rides program and are so glad to bring it back along with holiday celebrations this year,” said Kristina Hoffman, director of marketing and communications at Milwaukee County Transit System. “This continued partnership is part of our commitment to enhancing public safety for our riders and the communities we serve.”
