MCTS is actively seeking well-established businesses to become our partners by providing special offers to our Rider Insider members. The benefit to you? Increased traffic and exposure to your business!
The Rider Insider database currently contains over 20,000 members. We communicate with these riders every other month. Your business will receive exposure through these mailings as well as on the MCTS website. As our database grows, so does your exposure.
What Is a Rider Insider?
The Rider Insider program is a membership-based program that was developed to track, recruit, retain and reward MCTS riders. The membership program provides riders with the latest information on transit happenings (including route and fare changes), special offers and discounts.
How it Works
First, members sign up for the program and indicate if they would like updates via e-mail or regular mail. Then, six times a year they receive updates on the transit system. Also, once a year, customers receive a mailer with many coupons from local establishments.
Each partnership will be different depending on specific partners and offers. The offer will be tailored to accommodate your business needs and profitability. MCTS will work with you to develop a mutually beneficial partnership.
To get traffic to your business, MCTS will provide:
- Direct Mailing: Coupons sent directly to members' mailboxes once a year.
- Promotion: Cross-promotion in newsletter, Bus Lines publication, on the MCTS website and possible media partner mentions.
- Co-op: MCTS may be able to leverage various advertising opportunities (individually or jointly).
- Site Promotion: Signage and sign-up forms can be provided for each business.
