Try Transit, Win Prizes

This October Transportation Choices and Downtown On the Go invites you to explore your transit options for Try Transit Month. They've got a list of resources and fun events planned, and opportunities to win fabulous prizes.

Try Transit this October

Are you transit curious? Want to take the bus but not sure where to start? Tired of watching trains whiz by while you sit in traffic? Maybe you just want to save money on gas and parking?

This October is your opportunity to try public transportation. Whether you’ve never ridden a bus or train or you just want to try a new route, Try Transit Month offers the resources, motivation, and incentives you need to take the plunge.

Already a Transit User? Become a Rider Recruiter!
Win $50 at IGA City Grocer or on your ORCA card when you recruit 3 friends to try transit 3 times each during October. Plus, your friends will enjoy prizes for riding 3 times! Contact dotg@tacomachamber.org for more information.

Log four trips or recruit eight friends and get entered to win prizes. Daily drawings will be held for prizes, including ORCA cards, restaurant gift cards, sports/museum/theater/ballet tickets, and more, along with the normal rewards that come with taking public transportation, like more exercise, avoiding the hassle and stress of driving in nasty weather and rush hour traffic, and the money you save when you don't have to pay for gas and parking.

Sign up, log your trips, recruit friends, win prizes. Seems simple enough.

Why do you ride transit? Still skeptical? What keeps you from riding transit?

Transit is so unpopular they have to bribe people to participate.

Or trying new things, including transit, can be intimidating and it’s nice to have the extra support and incentives.
