Miller Lite Free Rides
New Year's Eve can be quite a financial burn. After buying a new outfit, paying admission to an overcrowded party, then spending money on food and drinks, the whole thing starts to tax the wallet in ways you haven't experienced since prom. Considering that this holiday comes every year, that's pretty ridiculous. Thankfully, one thing you can avoid overspending on this evening is transportation. Starting at 6 p.m., MetroTransit buses, the light rail, and the Northstar commuter train in Minneapolis and St. Paul will be running their regular routes for free. Meaning, if you plan things right, you can drink without worrying about parking, being a designated driver, or hailing a cab. For detailed route and schedule information, you can call 1.800.FREE-RIDES, text "METRO" to 90464, or visit www.MillerLiteFreeRides.com. (Photo by meetminneapolis)
