Ride DTA Bus Service for Free on New Year’s Eve

DULUTH, MINNESOTA (December 8, 2014) – The Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) is teaming up with Miller Lite to provide Duluth-area residents and visitors with free transit service as they ring in the New Year. Miller Lite Free Rides will be available on all regular-route bus service beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 31, 2014. Service will be extended on most routes until after 12 midnight, with the last buses departing downtown Duluth as late as 2:20 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

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

This is the fourth year in a row that the DTA has offered free transportation on New Year’s Eve but the first time it has partnered with Miller Lite.  Additional sponsors include KQDS Fox 21 and Red Rock Radio.

“Providing safe and convenient public transit service is what the DTA is all about,” said John Brostrom, DTA Board President. “We’re pleased to be partnering with Miller Lite on this annual campaign promoting safe and responsible celebrations on New Year’s Eve.”
