Riders asked to submit stories for contest

Lawrence Transit System is celebrating 15 years of service to the community with a story-writing contest for bus riders.

“We know that many bus riders have great stories to tell, and we would like to hear them,” said Robert Nugent, transit administrator. “We would like to recognize our most loyal customers and show them how much we appreciate them.”

First prize for the contest is 12 months free bus fare. Second prize is 6 months free bus fare, and third prize is 3 months free bus fare.

The online entry form is on the Lawrence Transit website at www.lawrencetransit.org/share-your-story. Paper forms can be picked up and dropped off at the Lawrence Transit administrative office at 933 New Hampshire from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. They can also be returned by mail to Lawrence Transit, P.O. Box 708, Lawrence, KS 66044.

The deadline for entry is December 1, 2015.

Anyone who rides the Lawrence Transit System is encouraged to enter. Both fixed-route and paratransit riders are eligible to win. Entries will be judged by a five person panel who will determine the winners.

Winners will be recognized on the Lawrence Transit website, and at a City Commission meeting in January 2016.
