Farecard naming contest: last day to enter!

Get your suggestions into our contest! You’ve only got until midnight tonight, Monday November 8, to submit a name for our electronic fare card, coming in 2013.

Key things to remember:

  • The winner gets an iPad and in 2013, an electronic fare card loaded with a year’s worth of transit
  • You can enter as many times as you like!
  • If you need contest inspiration, here’s a list of farecard names from other places, and the top 10 most entered names in our contest!
  • The winning name will be selected in December 2010 by our board, and announced shortly thereafter. (For complete details on how the process works, see the rules and regulations.)

Don’t delay! Enter now!

(If you’re curious, btw, we have over 45,000 entries in the contest so far: but don’t let that stop you! That’s not every word in the dictionary by a long shot :)

    Someone needs to look at the clock on this blog!

    ;-): Fixed! Thanks for the catch. WordPress doesn’t automate its Daylight Savings Time stuff so I needed to do that manually.

    what if multiple people submitted the name you end up choosing for the card?

    Kirsten: Then we do a random draw for a winner from all those people who submitted the name!

    When will the winner be announced?
