I Love Transit: Share the love and win!

buzzer_header_templateIf you love transit and you know it, clap your hands… and then enter the the I Love Transit contest!

We know it isn’t I Love Transit week JUST yet, but we couldn’t wait any longer!

This is your chance to show the world what you love about riding buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express in Metro Vancouver. For instance:

I love transit because… it helps me get me where I’m going without worrying things like gas prices or driving in gridlock traffic.

I love transit because… I use my commute for some “me time” whether that be reading, listening to music or enjoying the scenery whizzing past.

Now it’s time for you to get creative as you tell us why you love transit.i_love_transit_2016_banner_300x90

Rules

Check out the I LOVE TRANSIT 2016 contest terms and conditions, but here’s the lowdown:

  • The Contest will open on August 23, 2016 and all entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. on September 2, 2016. Late entries will not be considered.
  • One entry per channel, per person so make it count! You can enter up to three times in total.
  • The Monthly Pass will be for one, two, or three zones, depending on where the winner travels.
  • We’ll announce the winners from a random draw on the blog, Twitter and Instagram!
  • To be fair to everyone, one person cannot win all three draws. So, if we draw your name for one of the channels, you will be excluded from the other two Monthly Pass draws.

Photos may be used in the print Buzzer, the Buzzer blog, tweeted by @TransLink, posted on the TransLink Facebook page and @TransLinkBC Instagram account.
