RT Thanks Riders and Celebrates "Ride Transit October" - Wiley Greets Customers During "Ride with the GM"


CONTACT: Alane Masui Wednesday, October 08, 2014
During the month of October 2014, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) will conduct outreach activities and promotions to show appreciation for current riders and to encourage new riders to discover the benefits of taking transit.

The “Ride Transit October” campaign will feature "Fun Fridays" at the RT Customer Service and Sales Center (located at 1225 R Street) where customers can take a spin on the prize wheel with purchase (October 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31); a “Why Do You Ride Transit?” social media contest where riders will have the opportunity to post to win an RT Basic monthly pass; a social media #TransitTrivia contest on Tuesdays (October 7, 14, 21 and 28) with chances to win prizes; and Customer Appreciation Days when RT staff will greet customers on random routes throughout the system.

Mike Wiley, RT General Manager/CEO, will also be out on the system riding buses and light rail trains as part of the annual "Ride with the GM" promotion. Wiley, who regularly rides the system, will interact personally with passengers to answer questions and listen to feedback about RT’s service. Riders are encouraged to check his travel itinerary each week at sacrt.com.

Check RT’s website at sacrt.com throughout October for a complete calendar of events, or follow RT on Facebook or Twitter for updates.
