Transit Month Ride Contest Prizes
Keep an eye on this page! Additional prizes may be added throughout the month!
All prizes are for the entire month unless otherwise noted.
You cannot win more than two prize categories per household.
All prizes must be claimed at the Rider First Award Ceremony on October 13th at 375 Beale Street in San Francisco, unless otherwise noted.
We love our transit operators, but Ride Contest prizes are available only to transit riders, not transit operators who log the routes they drive professionally. Do you know a transit operator who goes above and beyond? Nominate them for a Rider First Award here before September 24th.
For the transit rider who logs the most valid trips this September:
Tickets for you and a guest to join a behind-the-scenes tour of TJPA’s Salesforce Transit Center, including the two-level trainbox already built under the Center, which will be outfitted with rail service when Caltrain and ultimately, California High-Speed Rail’s statewide system comes to the Center.
