Ride with Rapid Penang and win iPads !!!

Public bus operator Rapid Penang will hold a lucky draw as part of its upcoming Lunar New Year celebration where the top prizes are eight iPads.

The lucky draw is part of the public transport operator’s aim to reward loyal commuters.

The Rapid Ride to Prosperity Draw will be held from Feb 1 until April 30.

Rapid Penang chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad told a press conference at the Eastin Hotel on Friday that the company was finding ways to excite commuters as well as enticing new passengers.

“We hope to attract more white collared workers to use our servi-ces,” he said.

Azhar said the move was in line with the government’s drive to expand public transport ridership.

Commuters have several ways of becoming eligible for the draw.

They can either obtain the Youth or Emas receipt tickets, which are sold mainly to the young and elderly respectively, or by collecting 30 Rapid Penang bus tickets.

Those with such tickets are entitled to one lucky draw per entry.

They can also choose to purchase the Rapid Preferred receipt ticket, which will be an added bonus, as they will be entitled to two entries.

The contest is open to all commuters.

They can send as many entries as they want.

However, each winner can only win one prize in the draw.

Entry forms are available at all Rapid kiosks as well as via its website at

All entries must reach Rapid Penang before midnight on April 30.

If any uncle or auntie that got this IPad and willing to sell it out at a bargain price, please contact me, I want !!! Haha :)
