St. Patrick's Day arrives early with FREE RIDES. 

Celebrate the luck of the Irish responsibly and get a free ride on Metro Transit on Saturday, March 16 – one day prior to St. Patrick’s Day – in conjunction with the Minneapolis and St. Paul parades.

Customers can ride free from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. on all Metro Transit routes on the day before St. Patrick’s Day– buses, METRO lines and Northstar.

Simply hop on and take a seat for free. 

If you’re celebrating that night – or want to avoid driving alongside those who are – riding the bus or train is a worry-free and safe alternative. 

Watch for Metro Transit in the St. Patrick’s Day parades in downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul on Saturday, March 16; not Sunday. 

Free rides will also be available on Minnesota Valley Transit Authority and Anoka County Traveler routes.

Miller Lite Free Rides is a community service program in partnership with Metro Transit and Miller Lite.
