Miller Lite Free Rides Returning to Milwaukee

The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is teaming up with Miller Lite to provide Milwaukee residents and visitors with free bus service as they ring in the New Year.

Miller Lite Free Rides will be available on all regular-route bus rides beginning at 8:00 pm on Saturday, Dec. 31, with routes running until the end of regularly scheduled service.

Several popular bus routes will have extended service until 4:00 am. Extended routes (GoldLine, GreenLine, BlueLine, Routes 14, 15, 19, 21, 27 & 30) will run their normal routes except Route 14, which will end at 74th & Holmes, and Route 19 will extend service only on S.13th Street.

“We’re excited to help people ring in the New Year safely by bringing Miller Lite Free Rides back to Milwaukee,” said Diane Wagner, Responsibility Initiatives Manager for MillerCoors. “Our partnership with MCTS will take countless cars off the road and help ensure the holiday is memorable for all the right reasons.”

“Miller Lite Free Rides is an important tradition to the Milwaukee County community. The program has kept our roads safe on New Year’s Eve for almost thirty years,” said Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive. “Community residents and visitors can always count on MCTS as their safe travel option to and from their celebrations on New Year’s Eve.”

This is the 29th year in a row that MCTS and Miller Lite have offered free transportation on New Year’s Eve

Since the program’s inception, Miller Lite Free Rides has provided safe rides to more than 5.5 million people. For more information, visit
