CARTA Commerce: Let's Get Rolling

08/05/2016

Do you own or operate a business? Do you also want to not only improve public transit but also reduce congestion in the Lowcountry? 

Here's your chance. It's called CARTA Commerce, and it works like this:

1. Businesses provide a discount or benefit to customers with a valid CARTA pass. It could be 10 percent off, a BOGO offer or free drink with purchase. Or something else. You decide and let us know!

2. In return businesses receive a super-awesome decal to display (see above), plus ongoing social media exposure and great community relations PR.

3. And, finally, you get the warm feeling of knowing you’re helping to make public transit in Charleston better. Lots of people talk about it. Now you can do it by helping to incentivize public transportation.

There is no cost to participate and businesses can opt out at any time.

So … ride local, buy local and let CARTA drive some business your way! For more information and to get started, contact Sebastian Hale at shale@rawlemurdy.com.
