Y$2K Ride Transit - Win Prizes

When you go back to school, would you like to tell your friends you got a new Nintendo Switch? Show off your new Nikes? Have your Starbucks tab covered for the month?

The truth is - summer is short, so make every moment count! The MTS Y$2K Summer Challenge is your chance to make the most of your summer break, and win cool prizes along the way.

With the Youth Opportunity Pass (YOP), youth ride MTS buses and Trolleys for free with your Youth PRONTO card. And, when youth 13 – 18 participate in the Y$2K Summer Challenge, you’ll not only have more adventures to talk about with your friends, but you could be one of 10 lucky winners to walk away with a prize worth up to $500!

Here’s How it Works:  

  • In the month of July, you’ll have the chance to participate in up to four social media challenges
  • Post a video or photo carousel of you completing the transit challenge to your TikTok or Instagram account between July 1 – 31.
  • The student with the most views for a challenge will have first pick at our Grand Prizes: a Nintendo Switch, new Beats Studio Pro headphones, an electric scooter or beach cruiser.
  • In addition, we’ll have ‘MTS Choice’ awards, where MTS staff will vote for their favorite posts across all challenge entries. Six (6) more winners can win: a Lululemon backpack, 10,000 Roblox Robux or $100 to Nike, Starbucks, the Padres Team Store and Sephora.
  • In total, 10 people will win a prize, ranging from approximately $100 to over $500!
