 The Miller Lite Free Rides program, which for a couple of years has offered transportation to people attending the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Chicago, has been expanded to include other events, three of which are taking place this weekend in the South Chicago area.  The free shuttle bus rides will be offered at the Oak Forest Fleadh on Saturday and the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Tinley Park Irish Parade on Sunday.  “We believe that drunken driving is completely preventable and encourage folks to plan ahead for a safe ride home this St. Patrick’s Day,” Diane Wagner, a manager for MillerCoors, said in a prepared statement.  Since the program’s inception, Miller Lite Free Rides has provided rides to more than 2.9 million people and expects to have its 3 millionth rider on St. Patrick’s Day.
