Mark your calendars, students! Ohio University is sponsoring a Bobcat Pass event on APT, and you could win a $50 gift card! The following details on #RidewithRufus originally appeared in Ohio University Compass:
“On Thursday, Sept. 15, Ohio University students will have the opportunity to ride Athens Public Transit routes with Rufus using their student ID – and potentially win one of five $50 Visa gift cards!
To enter the social media contest, students should use their University ID to ride any Athens Public Transit route on Thursday, Sept. 15 and post a selfie on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #RidewithRufus. Winners will be randomly selected from all #RidewithRufus posts, so students should ensure their account is set to public.
Rufus will be riding routes all day and he’ll be looking out for fellow Bobcats!
Five winners will be notified via direct message from the official Ohio University Twitter or Instagram account. Winners will each receive one $50 Visa gift card. Instructions for claiming their prize will be included in the direct message.”
Bobcat Pass is a yearlong pilot program offering free APT bus service to students, faculty, and staff. In August, Bobcats rode the bus over 9,000 times; your first ride could be one to remember if you enter to win on the 15th.
