Marketing Opportunity: Ride-the-Bus Punch Pass

Promote your business {for free!} to GMT Bus riders this winter!

For the 3rd year, the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Mad River Valley Planning District, and Green Mountain Transit are partnering on a Ride-the-Bus incentive program for winter 2018/19.

The RIDE-THE-BUS PUNCH PASS is designed to increase GMT Bus ridership, and bring riders into local businesses!

Businesses (you!) can participate, simply by agreeing to offer a Rider Reward.

All participating businesses will be listed — with a link to your website — on

Last winter, this page had over 2,500 visits.  This page is the top search result for MRV Bus information, and with the Punch Pass program, we expect page views to continue to increase… resulting in more visibility for participating businesses!

Here’s how the RIDE-THE-BUS PUNCH PASS works:

1. Riders will pick up their [free!] PUNCH PASS on board any bus, or in the MRV Bus Map & Guide (it’ll be a tear-out element).
2. Each time the rider rides the Bus, they will get a ‘punch’ on their pass from the bus driver.
3. When the rider gets 10 ‘punches’, they can bring their PUNCH PASS to their choice of participating business, and trade it in for the great reward that business offers.
