MVTA, American Seating team to promote transit

Posted on August 20, 2009

[IMAGE]Am.jpg[/IMAGE]American Seating and Minnesota Valley Transportation Association (MVTA) are teaming together to promote public transportation and attendance to the Minnesota State Fair in September.  

MVTA won American Seating's "Ticket to Ride" promotion at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Exposition in October 2008. American Seating met with MVTA in August to present them with their sponsorship award.

The MVTA is promoting that "Your Library Card is your Ticket to Ride" on the State Fair's Read and Ride Day, Sept. 2. In addition to the discount bus fare on MVTA buses, fair patrons get a reduced admission by showing their library card and there will be discounts on Midway rides.

"MVTA has been a long-time customer of American Seating's, so we are excited to collaborate with them and help increase ridership in Burnsville," said Dave McLaughlin, vice president of transportation sales for American Seating.

MVTA is the public transportation provider for residents and businesses of Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Rosemount, and Savage.
