#ThankYou100K: Celebrating 100,000 followers with a contest!

ThankYou100K [1]We’ve been celebrating a lot here at TransLink! There was 40,000 followers on Twitter [2], then 50,000 of you following us [3] and now you’ve helped us reach a monumental 100,000 Twitter followers!

The @TransLink [4] Twitter account started way back in February of 2010 during the Winter Olympics, providing riders with breaking news and key service updates.

In November of 2010 we launched a one-month pilot project [5] in an effort to better serve our customers. It was extended multiple times [6] before becoming a permanent service in February 2011 [7]!

In fact, our Customer Information team is in such high demand, on March 14th of this year, we extended our Customer Information service hours [8] on Twitter from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., seven days a week to:

Monday to Friday: 5:30 a.m. – 12:30 a.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 6:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.

to answer all your service-related questions and provide service updates, tips, and information to all 100,000+ [9] of you!

Contest time!

To celebrate this excellent milestone, we’re having a giveaway (Prizing to be announced soon!) To enter, simply follow @TransLink [4] and retweet one of the following tweets from our Twitter team:


Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 1st, 2016 and we’ll randomly select a winner on June 2nd, 2016. Make sure to check out the contest terms and conditions [17] for all the details on the contest.
