Today is the big day. From now until November 28, 2011, the TransLink Facebook page (www.facebook.com/translink ) will be transformed into a tournament-style battle to determine the biggest transit pet peeve is.
Each weekday, two pet peeves will do battle by having people vote for the one they think is the biggest pet peeve.
The day after each battle, you can check the Facebook page  to see which pet peeve won that round of the battle. The first round takes place during the first four days. The semi-final round happens during the next two days. The final battle that will determine the biggest pet peeve will be held on Monday, November 28.
The day after each battle day, we’ll be randomly drawing for two prizes. On the final day of the battle, November 28, we’ll be giving away the grand prize. Here’s what you can win:
November 17:Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardDraw #2 – A $50 Chapters/!ndigo/Coles gift card + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 18:Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardDraw #2 - A $40 Blenz Coffee card + a TransLink travel mugNovember 21:Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardDraw #2 – A $50 iTunes card + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 22:Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardDraw #2 – A $50 Earls gift certificate + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 23:Semi-Final Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardSemi-Final Draw #2 – A pair of headphones + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 24:Semi-Final Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardSemi-Final Draw #2 – A $50 Lush gift certificate + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 25:Final Draw #1 – A 3-Zone FareCardFinal Draw #2 – A $50 Bay/Zellers/Home Outfitters gift card + a TravelSmart umbrella and bike lightNovember 28:Grand Prize Draw – A 16-GB (Black) iPhone4S (Unlocked)!
You’ll need to be a Facebook user, “like” the TransLink Facebook page (www.facebook.com/translink ) and be a resident of British Columbia in order to be eligible to win a prize in the draws. Anyone who already “likes” the TransLink Facebook page  or who “likes” the page by midnight, November 28 PST is eligible to win a prize. Check the prize window on our Facebook page for terms and conditions.
The battle is a fun way to inspire some positive change in how people conduct themselves on transit. Everyone has an opinion about transit peeves, so it gets people talking and thinking about what they do on transit.
Since the contest was announced in the November print Buzzer, people have been posting their personal pet peeves on this blog, our Facebook page  as well as talking about it on Twitter. So let’s keep the conversation going, give away some prizes and see if we can’t change some behaviours on transit!
