All around the world people are busy rooting around in the back of their closets to find their leprechaun-inspired top hats and dusting off their token green t-shirt, preparing for the St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17 March.
With St Patrick’s Day parades and events in just about every corner of the globe, you can rely on Moovit to get you to and from the craic (Irish for “fun”) to ensure you get your fix of food and drinks that come with a healthy serving of green coloring.
Don’t take a car — Transit agencies have warned that with the crowds, public transit is the best way to navigate the city on St Patrick’s Day, so leave your car at home skip the long car-parking queues.
Dress up — It’s one of the easiest holidays to dress up for, so there’s no excuse! Green is the new black…
Be safe — It’s important that if you’re planning to get “merry” or if you see someone who shouldn’t drive home, make sure to use public transit or Uber (available on Moovit in more than 70 U.S. cities and 130+ around the world).
