Free DART rides on New Year's Eve

People can ring in 2016 with a free ride on public transit in Dallas.

DART, MillerCoors and Andrews Distributing are partnering up to keep drunk drivers off the streets on New Year’s Eve. The free rides apply to all DART bus routes, light rail and TRE trains between Centreport/DFW Airport and Union Station. The free rides start at 6 p.m. and goes until all services end early New Year’s morning.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins hopes people make smart choices as they’re celebrating.

“I want people who drink and drive to know something -- if you don't take advantage of this partnership we are going to find you. If you drink and you drive on New Year’s Eve this year, we're going to do our best to see that you go to jail.”

The beer company will have similar partnerships in more than 20 cities across the country this year.
