What Is METRO Rider Rewards?
METRO Rider Rewards is a ridership program designed to provide added value to the current benefits already offered to METRO Q® Fare Card holders while promoting our local community partners along our bus and rail service area. The program provides discounts to METRO patrons by “driving” customers to Houston-area businesses, through promotional offers and discounts offered by a simple show of a METRO Q Card.
Program perks include:
- Attract new customers
- Leverage METRO’s powerful Web / social media and blog presence
- Generate community support
- Promote directly to METRO cardholders
How will METRO Rider Rewards help my business?
As a program participant, your business will be featured on the METRO Rider Rewards page. 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 METRO cardholders only, and would require them to show their METRO Q® Fare Card, METRO Day Pass, METRO Money Card or METRO Convention Pass to redeem your offer.
What is my investment in the program?
The METRO Rider Rewards program is available at absolutely no charge to participants. Simply provide us with a special deal or discount for riders who view your promotion. Sample offers include:
- At least 10% off of a purchase
- Buy one, get one free offer
- $1.00 off of a minimum purchase
What is my obligation?
Businesses are asked to commit to the METRO Rider Rewards program and honor their “offer” to METRO riders for a minimum of one year.
Participants have the option of ending their program participation at the end of the one year term, or they can renew their partnership agreement for another year.
What if I need to change my “offer?”
Participants can make changes to their METRO Rider Rewards offer anytime. Just notify the METRO Client Services department RiderRewards@RideMETRO.org at least
two weeks prior to when the requested changes need to be implemented.
