Metro's Rolling Rail Fair

Metro held a Rolling Rail Fair from May 19 -29 inside its underground rail stations. Over the eight day period (excluding weekends), NFTA and Metro personnel were on site at various dates and times staffing a table where over 800 customers came out to spin the Metro prize wheel to win coffee and music gift cards, meal certificates, transit passes, Bison tickets, and other Metro merchandise.

In addition to the excitement of spinning the prize wheel, customers were able to enter a drawing to win one of four grand prizes that included tickets to attend the Imagine Dragons and Rush concerts as well as Edgefest and a Bisons suite. The winners of the grand prizes were randomly chosen after the rail fair concluded, and the drawing can be viewed here.

The Rolling Rail Fair promotion was part of a customer appreciation initiative to thank loyal riders of the Metro Rail system for their continued patronage, especially during the “single tracking” periods last summer, which was necessitated by the city’s project to return cars to Main Street.
