BART is holding a holiday sweepstakes drawing with Visa gift cards and Clipper cards as prizes. The contest is intended to encourage use of the transit system for holiday shopping.
Any California resident aged 18 or older can enter for a chance to win one of 10 "Shop and Ride Prize Packs." Each pack contains a $400 Visa gift card and a $40 Clipper card.
BART is "the best way to get your holiday shopping done," the agency said in a contest announcement. "You'll avoid traffic, parking and arrive relaxed and ready to shop. Remember, there's plenty of free weekend parking in BART lots and you can plan your trip using bart.gov's online QuickPlanner."
Only one entry is permitted per person. Anyone submitting more than one entry will be disqualified.
A drawing to determine the 10 winners will be held in Oakland "on or about January 10," according to the sweepstakes rules. You don't have to be present to win.
