Tonight New Year's Eve parties are all over Chicago, from huge hotel ballroom bashes to intimate gatherings with friends. At almost all of these festivities, people will be drinking, and some of those people will be drinking a lot.

Miller Lite and the Chicago Transit Authority want to make sure you get from this year to the next safely, so from 10pm until 4am on December 31 you can ride any CTA bus or train for just a penny.

Prefer a cab? Hailo is offering $10 if one of their drivers picks you up at a bar that serves Miller Lite. Through January 5 stop by a participating bar and get your code. You can then plug it into the cab service app on your phone to get your credit.
