Riding the bus this summer was even more rewarding than usual for many people in the Comox Valley, due to the In2Transit promotion run by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). During July and August over 40 bus riders won prizes valued at $50 or more.
“We would like to thank everyone who got In2Transit and to congratulate our August winners: Kim Watson, Corina Grossmann and Brian Charlton,” said Michael Zbarsky, Manager of Transit and Sustainability.
The promotion doesn’t stop just because summer has. It runs until November 15, 2015. To enter, ride the bus and either take a selfie and post it to a social media channel with the tag #In2Transit, or fill out an In2Transit ticket and drop it off with your bus driver.
Three monthly winners will be chosen for September and October out of the tickets and selfies submitted during those months and then three grand prize winners will be chosen from all the submissions throughout the promotion. Details on this promotion and where to get tickets can be found online at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/in2transit.
The monthly prizes remaining include gift certificates to businesses on the 34 C2C Express bus route – The Broken Spoke, Mudsharks Coffee Bar, Zocalo Cafe, Gladstone Brewing Co, Tim Hortons, and Caffe Amantes. The grand prizes include $500, a 16GB iPod Mini from My Tech Guys and $50 gift certificates to local restaurants along other Comox Valley bus routes (The Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa, Manvirros Indian Grill, Martine’s Bistro, Ichiban Sushi Restaurant and Locals Restaurant.)
