What Is Pierce Transit Rider Rewards?
Pierce Transit Rider Rewards is a ridership program designed to provide added value to the current benefits already offered to ORCA and other Pierce Transit Fare media holders while promoting community partners along our bus routes. The program provides discounts to Pierce Transit riders by connecting customers to Pierce County businesses, through promotional offers and discounts offered by simply showing Pierce Transit fare tickets or passes.
Program benefits include:
- Attracting new customers
- Leveraging Pierce Transit’s online presence
- Generating community support
- Promoting your business directly to Pierce Transit riders
How will Pierce Transit Rider Rewards help my business?
As a program participant, your business will be featured on the Pierce Transit Rider Rewards page. Participating businesses must not conflict with the Pierce Transit Advertising Policy. Here, visitors can click on your business logo to reveal the deal or discount currently offered. Your business will also be promoted on our interactive map.
When customers pull up the route(s) closest to your establishment, your business will be highlighted on the map.
This unique offer would be made available to Pierce Transit ticket or pass holders only and would require them to show their ticket or pass, or ORCA card to redeem your offer.
What is my investment in the program?
The Pierce Transit Rider Rewards program is available at absolutely no charge to participating businesses. Simply provide us with a special deal or discount for riders who view your promotion. Sample offers include:
- At least 10% off a purchase
- Buy one, get one free offer
- $1.00 off a minimum purchase
What is my obligation?
Businesses are asked to commit to the Pierce Transit Rider Rewards program and honor their “offer” to Pierce Transit riders for a minimum of one year.
Businesses have the option of ending their program participation at the end of the one-year term, or they can renew their partnership for another year.
What if I need to change my “offer?”
Businesses can make changes to their Piece Transit Rider Rewards offer anytime. Just notify the Pierce Transit Employer Services team at RiderRewards@piercetransit.org at least two weeks prior to when the requested changes need to be implemented.
