Miller Lite is teaming up with the Bears, CTA, Uber and Chicago Beverage to provide Bears fans safe and free rides to and from Soldier Field.

Before and after the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, CTA will supply free rides to all Bears fans at the Roosevelt Station until four hours after the game. And there will be free rides until 6 p.m. via double decker buses for fans living around the South Loop area.

Miller Lite and Uber are also partnering together to provide transportation after the Bears game, and Uber will give fans free rides, up to $25, after the game.

The goal behind this program is to get fans to and from the game safely and encourage fans to enjoy the game responsibly.
