Prizes for transit-related New Year’s resolutions
By Clarence Johnson
-- As the New Year approaches, it’s not unusual for people to start thinking about their New Year’s resolutions. This year, AC Transit wants to encourage resolutions that relate to transit and the environment.
AC Transit is holding a contest through its Facebook page called “My Transit Resolution.” Participants who share their 2013 Transit Resolution will be eligible to win great prizes, including a gift certificate to Faz Restaurant in Oakland, tickets to the Martin Luther King tribute concert at the Paramount, movie passes, $25 to spend at Oaklandish gift shop in downtown Oakland, and an AC Transit 31-Day bus pass. The contest ends on January 11, 2013.
A Transit Resolution is anything someone can do to give transit a try, use transit more or make riding transit a better experience for all. It could be a commitment to taking the bus to the gym, obtaining a Clipper card or saying hello to the passenger seated next to them.
Participants can access the “My Transit Resolution” contest page on the AC Transit web site at www.actransit.org. After “liking” AC Transit’s Facebook page (if they’re not already a fan), participants share, in brief, their transit resolution for 2013. They may also submit a photo that visually represents their resolution.
All participants will be in the running for great local prizes and those who contribute a photo will also be eligible to win an AC Transit 31-Day bus pass. Photos submitted will be shared on the AC Transit web site after the contest closes on January 11, 2013.
