Lebanon Transit Invites Residents to ‘Name the Bus’ for Try Transit Month

Residents may call Lebanon Transit’s buses some unique names when driving behind them. But now Lebanon Transit is inviting residents to harness that creative naming power to give names to its fleet of buses during its first Name the Bus contest. Winning names will be displayed on each bus so residents can identify them by name during Try Transit Month in September.

The contest will consist of two rounds. During the first round, participants can submit up to three (3) bus names per person. Following this round, Lebanon Transit staff will select its top 50 favorite names from all submissions, which will be put to a community-wide online vote to determine the winning 18 names, one for each bus in Lebanon Transit’s fleet.

The name submission round will open on Monday, July 15 at 8:00 a.m. and close on Sunday, July 28 at midnight. The community voting round will run from Friday, August 2 at 8 a.m. through Friday, August 9 at 4:00 p.m. Winning names will be announced and winners notified by Friday, August 30, 2024. Of the eighteen winners, eight (8) will be randomly selected to receive an official Lebanon Transit fleece scarf.

Both contest rounds will be hosted online at www.LebanonTransit.org/NameTheBus. Residents without internet access can contact the Marketing Coordinator at 717.274.3664 x 304 to submit their entries.
