AC Transit is encouraging riders to take "selfies" showing their spirit for riding the bus as part of a video contest for its "I Ride AC Transit" campaign.

Riders who submit a five- to seven-second video of themselves or a friend or family member completing the sentence, "I ride AC Transit because ..." will be automatically entered to win a 31-day bus pass good for both Transbay and local travel, according to Dennis Butler, chief planning and development officer for AC Transit.

Entrants should submit a link to their video on the contest website at www.rideact.org by April 25, Butler said.

AC Transit has a new "I Ride AC Transit" TV ad airing on several Bay Area Comcast stations, Butler said.
