Current Perks

For Businesses

CARTA Commerce is an opportunity for businesses to attract customers while supporting public transit!

How It Works
  • Businesses offer a PERK to customers who present a valid CARTA bus pass when making purchases: BOGO, % OFF, free products, or any incentive you choose!
  • Once signed up, businesses receive a “CARTA Commerce” decal to display in-store where pedestrians and customers can see it.*
  • In turn, businesses are promoted to CARTA riders and the community on RideCARTA.com, promotional materials, social media, press releases, and more.

* No long-term commitment. Businesses can cancel at any time.
