Facebook Contest: Two Austin Film Fest Badges up for Grabs

You may have heard about our MetroRapid groundbreaking yesterday…maybe you’ve also been one of the early birds to watch our new YouTube video…below:

But, do you know that Capital Metro has two Austin Film Festival badges to give away? It’s true! How can you snag one? Click here Our contest is ongoing until Sept. 30!

We want to see your transit-inspired artwork. It doesn’t have to be fancy or require an extreme amount of work. Think about what transit means to you…Where do you ride to? How many places have you been to on the bus? Where are you looking forward to riding MetroRail? Take a picture, Instagram it, draw something, sketch, doodle, crayon, stamp, collage, etc. Anyway you want.

Once you have your idea and have a creation, take a picture of it and upload to our Facebook contest page. Take this for example:

Here’s an example I of a picture I took on 9/11 of a bus, then added filters. Preface: I have no artistic talent to claim!

It’s that simple. Capture a transit moment and submit it. After we have some entries on our Facebook page, others will be able to vote on each photo. The earlier you submit, the more time you have to wrangle-in those votes!
Start now!

We’ll award the top two entries. Each of our winners gets one Austin Film Fest badge! Each badge is worth over $100 bucks.

Now, go onto our Facebook page and look for the green tab at the top and enter your art baby.

PRESENTING: The Twitter Contest Idea Contest

We have 20 seven-day MetroPlus passes to give away that are going to expire on Oct. 31. We thought it’d be fun to do a twitter contest. We had a couple of ideas already for contests, but some of them would take more time than we have, and some of them were not too exciting. So. we’re going to do a contest to get some contest ideas.

The SKINNY: Tweet us @capmetrorail your idea for a twitter contest we could do at some later date. The first 20 ideas tweeted today before 4 p.m. will get a free pass to ride MetroBus, MetroExpress and MetroRail next week.


1) you must follow @capmetrorail to be eligible.
2) your tweet must mention @capmetrorail in the tweet.
3) You must provide via DM your address by 4 p.m. so we can mail you a pass ASAP–no guarantees it will show up in the mail tomorrow, though–could be Monday.
