MBTA Commuter Rail and Keolis Ask Passengers to “Share the Love” During February

Filed Under: Transportation

The MBTA and Keolis Commuter Services (Keolis), the MBTA’s operating partner for Commuter Rail, launched the second annual “Share the Love sweepstakes” from February 1 to Valentine’s Day February 14. This sweepstakes asks Commuter Rail passengers to share why they love Commuter Rail for a chance to win the grand prize, a monthly Commuter Rail pass. Passengers can participate by sharing the love online at www.massbytrain.com/shareyourlove or by submitting your response in person at a Share the Love pop up event, happening at Back Bay, North and South Station.

“We love our riders and the best way to demonstrate that is to give them the transportation system that they deserve and expect. From protecting our environment for future generations by reducing our carbon footprint to simply sitting back and letting us get you to and from your destination, there are many great reasons riders choose public transportation. Public feedback is essential to us in our mission, so share with us why public transportation is so vital to you!” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng. “As we continue to make progress improving the system, we at the MBTA are passionate about making the T the preferred choice of travel and providing the safest, best service possible. We thank our partners at Keolis for sharing in this mission and hope rail passengers help us share the love this month and beyond.”

“At Keolis we love having the opportunity to serve the people of Massachusetts by delivering safe and reliable Commuter Rail service to all of our passengers,” said Abdellah Chajai, CEO of Keolis Commuter Services. “The ‘Share the Love’ sweepstakes is a great opportunity for our passengers to share why the Commuter Rail is special to them.”

This is the second time the MBTA and Keolis are asking passengers to Share the Love, after successful pilot sweepstakes in February of 2023. More than 300 passengers participated some images of past submissions are shared below:
