Transit Rider Appreciation Day Friday in the Comox Valley

Transit riders in the Comox Valley are invited to enjoy some festive refreshments and enter to win great prizes on Friday, Dec. 14 at a Comox Valley Transit Rider Appreciation Day event.

From 7:15-9:45 a.m., transit riders will be greeted at the downtown Courtenay Transit Exchange at the corner of Fourth Street and Cliffe Avenue with hot beverages and treats. Comox Valley Transit is also giving away a Samsung Galaxy tablet package (valued at $300) to one lucky transit rider. There will be chances to win other great prizes as well, including gift certificates to Thrifty Foods, Mudsharks and The Broken Spoke.

For those who can’t make the event, riders can enter the prize draw via Facebook or Instagram by snapping a photo of themselves (on or off the bus) and posting it along with the hashtag #CVTransit any time between now and Dec. 17.

There are many benefits to riding the bus: saving money, reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality and increasing social connection.
