If you're passionate about transit, enter this contest.
It's all about choice.

Our **Green Programs** at BC Transit help connect people and communities with a network of integrated and sustainable transportation.When you choose transit, you choose a way to get from point A to point B and a whole lot more.You get time for yourself – time to read, listen to music on your ipod, learn another language, talk to other riders, or just relax. And you get health benefits with every trip that begins and ends with a walk.
You save money. In many communities a monthly bus pass is almost the same price as filling your gas tank. You can go a lot further on a bus pass. Here are just a few of our stories from riders in the past week including:


Schools can submit stories at http://www.transithero.ca in text, audio, or video formats and win a free bus for a day! Students can win prizes likeGoPro cameras and iPads!
