If you have never taken transit to work before or forget how, have no fear! Click here for ride guide information or call us at 1-866-579-RIDE(7433) and we would be happy to answer your questions and help find the transit route for you. There is no minimum number of trips required to be eligible for a prize, and you will receive one entry for each day that you use transit. If you already ride transit to work, you can earn even more chances to win prizes: have a friend or coworker ride with you and when they put your name on their log form as someone who referred them, you will get an additional chance to win for each day that they ride transit! Increase your chances by taking several people along on the bus or train.
