VAX & RIDE Contest

Ohio Department of Transportation’s Rides to Community Immunity program is funding a VAX & RIDE contest in Lake County to encourage public transit riders to get vaccinated and support the safety of transit drivers.

The VAX & RIDE contest is open to anyone who has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.  Contest participants have a chance to win a $100 Laketran bus pass by completing entry form and submitting proof of vaccination.  300 winners will be randomly selected from entries.  All entries must include proof of vaccination status to be valid.  The VAX & RIDE contest is open until September 17, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

Winners have the choice to add $100 to their EZfare Account Balance, Dial-a-Ride account or receive a $100 Value Card. Winner will be notified by email and fares will be automatically added to their EZfare or Dial-a-Ride accounts, based on their entry form.
