“The Original Light Beer is partnering with Metro and Premium Distributors to help residents and visitors ring in the New Year safely. Miller Lite Free Rides® will be available on all Metrorail and Metrobus routes beginning midnight on Friday, January 1, with free service until 3 a.m.
“We’re excited to bring our flagship Miller Lite Free Rides program to Washington, D.C. for the first time on New Year’s Eve,” said Diane Wagner, Responsibility Commerce Manager for MillerCoors. “Our partnership with Metro is part of MillerCoors overall commitment to help prevent drunk driving by bringing alcohol responsibility programs to more markets. Working together, Miller Lite, Metro and Premium Distributors will help ensure people have a great time this New Year’s Eve and get home safely from their celebrations.”
Free Rides will be available on all six Metrorail lines and all Metrobus routes from midnight until the Metro system closes at 3 a.m. On the rail system, customers should use their SmarTrip card or a paper fare card to enter and exit the system and will not be charged for the trip. On Metrobus, riders can simply show their SmarTrip card to board at no charge.”
