Also sign up for $4,500 "Money Grab" sponsored by Cricket Wireless
CINCINNATI -Metro provides about 5,000 rides a month on the Rt. 14X Forest Park Express to and from downtown Cincinnati.
To raise the awareness of the cost savings Forest Park commuters can realize by riding Metro instead of driving for their daily commute, Metro employees will be at the following locations to award prizes, share bus information with new customers and long-time bus riders, and give everyone the chance to enter Metro's "Money Grab" contest with a grand prize worth up to $4,500 cash, provided by Cricket Wireless:
- Forest Park Library, 655 Waycross Road (map), Tuesday, July 19, 1 - 3 p.m.
- Forest Park park & ride, 1160 Kemper Meadow (map), Thursday, July 21, 5:45 - 7:30 a.m.
Parking at the Forest Park park & ride is free and the fare is $2.65 one-way, directly to or from downtown Cincinnati. A monthly pass provides unlimited rides for $106.
Money Grab contest: Local commuters can save $4,500 or more a year by riding Metro. As a fun reminder of the savings, Metro has partnered with Cricket Wireless to give three contest winners the chance to grab up to $4,500 in cash this summer. The Money Grab contest, sponsored by Cricket Wireless, will run through Aug. 19, 2011. No public or Metro funds are being used for the Money Grab. Entries can be submitted at www.go-metro.com.
