Check out new bus designs, submit your top downtown Phoenix spot, and win prizes

Old Dash...We Want New Dash!The Phoenix Public Transit Department is celebrating the upcoming July 28 launch of its new DASH routes and the bold, newly painted DASH buses by holding a contest that asks people to tell them their favorite places in Downtown Phoenix.  The contest begins at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 21 and ends at 11 a.m. Monday, July 28.  The department will post illustrations of the new bus paint schemes along with a contest ballot box at the courtyard kiosk at Central Station (Central Avenue and Van Buren Street).

People are encouraged to stop by the kiosk to check out the new bus paint schemes, which include bold new colors and decals of various activities available in Downtown Phoenix.  The decals portray all facets of downtown ranging from work and play to education and dining.  Some decals include a cupcake icon to represent bakeries, a bistro icon to represent restaurants, and music notes to represent musical attractions.

While checking out the new bus paint schemes, people can enter to win several Downtown Phoenix-themed prizes by simply submitting a favorite downtown restaurant, school, sports complex, cultural attraction, or retailer.  The contest is open to all ages, and participants need not be present to win but must include contact information on their entries to be eligible.  Submissions are limited to one per person, must be completed and submitted during regular business hours of operation (7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed Saturday and Sunday) and must be turned in no later than 11 a.m. on July 28.  [Note: For complete details, click here.]
