10 November 2005 – Ride with SBS Transit and stand to win the grand prize of $10,000 in cold, hard cash in a lucky draw; or participate in an on-line auction to win LCD TV and MP3 Players every day for the 12 days before Christmas.
To spread Christmas cheer, SBS Transit will reward all ez-link commuters riding on our buses and trains (North East Line, Sengkang LRT and Punggol LRT) with “Transit dollars” from 12 November 2005 to 2 January 2006. The “Transit dollars” awarded between 12 November 2005 and 19 December 2005 can be used to bid for attractive prizes in an online auction on our website, www.sbstransit.com.sg. Commuters can start bidding for the prizes from 13 December 2005, 12 days before Christmas.
The “Transit dollars” will also entitle them to enter a lucky draw with attractive prizes to be won.
Commuters with concession ez-link cards using e-stamps would be issued “Transit tokens” which allow them to participate in the lucky draw.
The promotion is aimed at instilling a sense of excitement into public transport travel. Commuters stand to win not just electronic goodies but a grand prize of $10,000 cash as well.
Mr Ong Boon Leong, Executive Director, SBS Transit said, “ In the upcoming holiday season, we hope to see more people taking public transport when going on their shopping trips. And when they do, we hope this promotion will encourage them to choose SBS Transit as their mode of transport.”
To top it off, commuters riding on 83 selected services (see Annex A) including basic and basic-plus services like CityBuzz, Chinatown Direct, Fast Forward and Parks will get to double their “Transit dollars” or “Transit tokens” to increase their chances at the online auction and lucky draw.
The promotion period for the online auction is for travel between 12 November 2005 and 19 December 2005. Commuters can make use of the “Transit dollars” that they have accumulated during the period to bid for prizes online starting from 13 December 2005 to 24 December 2005. Their remaining “Transit dollars” after each successful bidding will be accumulated for the grand lucky draw. Commuters who prefer not to participate in the auction or were unsuccessful in their bid will have their “Transit dollars” automatically accumulated for the lucky draw too. Prizes including a 20 inch LCD TV, MP3 Players, for the online auction will be changed every day and can be viewed on our website.
*Commuters with “Transit tokens” are not eligible for the online auction.
The lucky draw will be held on 9 January 2006 with a grand prize of $10,000 cash and 17 other prizes to be won. One chance will be allocated for each “Transit dollar” for commuters using ez-link cards while one chance will be given for two “Transit tokens” for commuters using concession ez-link cards with e-stamp.
Commuters can log on to our website, www.sbstransit.com.sg for more information about this holiday promotion and its terms and conditions.
