In an effort to say thank you to passengers, Transfort plans to surprise its customers with free breakfast, snacks and coffee this spring.
The City of Fort Collins’ public transit department, Transfort, is hosting a series of “pop-up” customer appreciation events beginning the week of April 20 and running through the end of June. Transfort’s Travel Training Coordinator and customer service representatives plan to set up small stations at various bus stops and transit centers around town that will include free snacks, beverages and promotional items for passengers. The series includes 10 promotional events, each lasting one to two hours.
Stay updated on event locations and times by visiting Transfort’s website, ridetransfort.com, its Facebook page, Twitter account and by posting pictures with the hashtag #ridetransfort.
