Contest: name our future electronic fare card!

Edit, 1:35 p.m.: added one of the promotional videos above! There’s a second video here too.

Starting today, Tuesday, October 12, 2010, you can enter our contest to name our future electronic fare card!

As you may know, TransLink is putting an electronic fare card system in place by 2013, similar to fare payment systems in London and Hong Kong. But tomorrow’s fare card needs a name today—so we’re asking you to put your thinking caps on and get involved!

Submit your suggestions through our online form [1]or via text message (text CONTEST, your name, and your idea to 77777).

The winner gets an iPad, and in 2013, the winner will also receive an electronic fare card loaded with a year of free transit!
