I Love Transit 2017: Tell us your transit stories, share your love and win!

 

I Love Transit Week is upon us! It’s the one week we take out of the year to celebrate what we love about transit.

We want you to tell us why you love transit

Write an essay, snap a photo, write a Haiku, draw a picture, perform a song, or however you want to show transit some love then share that on social media with our hashtag, #ILoveTransit.

You can also email them to thebuzzer@translink.ca and we might feature it on our blog during the week.

Feeling lucky? Why not enter the the I Love Transit contest?!

Step 1. Figure out why you love transit.

Step 2. Tell us and you’re entered to win a Monthly Pass on your Compass Card! It’s that simple!

Read on for all the details.

Hey @TransLink, #ILoveTransit because…

  • Accounts must be public to participate

  • Follow @TransLinkBC and post a selfie on transit or a great photo from anywhere across the system with a caption that includes and completes this sentence:

Hey @TransLinkBC, #ILoveTransit because…

I love transit because…

Rules

Check out the I Love Transit 2017 contest terms and conditions, but here’s the lowdown:

  • The Contest will open on September 25, 2017 and all entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. on October 6, 2017. 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.
