Be safe and save some green this St. Patrick's Day

Nothing says "drinking holiday" quite like St. Patrick's Day. And since it falls on a Saturday this year, revelers have even more occasion to hit the town and fill up on their share of whiskey, Guinness and green beer.

Whether you're hitting up your local Irish standby or bar crawling into the wee hours of the morning, however, this is no occasion to get behind the wheel of a car.

Just to make sure the thought doesn't cross your alcohol-addled brain, MillerCoors and the Milwaukee County Transit System have teamed up once again to provide free bus service Saturday, March 17.

The Miller Lite Free Rides program will run from 6 p.m. until the end of regular service on all MCTS routes for St. Patrick's Day. Get route and schedule information by calling (800) FREE-RIDES (1-800-373-3743), texting "FREERIDE" to 90464 or visiting the Free Rides website.

Stay safe and have a happy St. Paddy's Day, Milwaukee.
