MillerCoors and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) have teamed up for the second year to provide transit customers celebrating New Year’s Eve with free rides on all buses, light rail trains, paratransit vehicles and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) from Union Station to CentrePort/DFW Airport Station.
No passes or coupons are required to ride free from 6 p.m. until end of service on Dec. 31 thanks to MillerCoors providing a safe alternative to driving. MillerCoors has been supporting free ride programs for decades in nearly two dozen cities with safe rides provided to more than five million people. The Dallas area campaign started New Year’s Eve 2015 and provided more than 37,000 free rides.
