WRTA Partners with MassRIDES & NuRide to Offer Incentives to Riders
Use promo code to earn 1,000 points
NuRide is the country’s largest commuter rewards program developed for individuals to make their traveling greener and their pocketbooks happier. From taking public transportation, to walking, carpooling, vanpooling, biking, to even telecommuting, this program offers individuals the opportunity to receive points that can be accumulated and then redeemed for retail discounts, restaurant coupons, and tickets to shows and attractions.
“This is a really fantastic opportunity for our riders to be rewarded for using the WRTA while also helping to reduce their own carbon footprint,” said WRTA Administrator Stephen O’Neil.
This free service is made available in Massachusetts by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and is supported by sponsors who provide special offers to NuRide members who register on the NuRide website and track their trips.
Getting started is as simple as visiting the WRTA’s website (www.therta.com), clicking on the NuRide logo, and registering to participate in the NuRide program. From there, each time a person takes a trip that involves carpooling with colleagues, biking to a friend’s house, telecommuting, or riding the bus, they can log that trip on the NuRide site. Each eligible trip will earn points that can be redeemed for discounts, coupons, shows, and attractions. Make sure to fill out the required fields in the “Sign up Today” section, click “sign up,” and enter the WRTA’s promo code, “BUSREWARDS,” on the next page. You will earn a bonus of 1,000 points just for signing up. It’s that easy to get started!
“This is an incredible program that is a win-win for everyone. Where else can you be rewarded for doing your part to reduce traffic, emissions, and your carbon footprint?” asked O’Neil.
“We’re pleased to be able to partner with MassRIDES and the NuRide program and continue on our forward momentum of environmental responsibility and sustainability,” O’Neil said.
