Carvana Partners With Bike Chattanooga Offering Free 24-Hour Passes Saturday

Monday, August 28, 2017

Carvana and Bike Chattanooga are offering complimentary Bike Chattanooga 24-hour Access Passes during their Chattanooga Bike Cruise Event on Saturday.

Carvana is now offering free customer delivery to Chattanooga residents. To celebrate, Carvana will have a music and prizes at Outdoor Chattanooga from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday.  

“We launched free, as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in Chattanooga earlier this month,” said Carvana Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer Ryan Keeton. “Now that residents can spend minutes purchasing a car on instead of wasting entire Saturdays at the dealership, we wanted to celebrate with them and give them a fun Saturday experience with Bike Chattanooga.”  

A bike painted with Carvana branding will also be added to Bike Chattanooga’s fleet for the month of September. The Carvana Bike will appear among 338 Bike Chattanooga bikes at one of the 37 stations. Riders are encouraged to find the Carvana Bike, take a ride around town, snap pictures of their adventure, and post and tag Carvana with the hashtag #CarvanaCruisesChattanooga for a chance to win a prize pack from the company.

Bike share system ambassadors will be placed around the city to assist customers with their ride transaction. A credit or debit card is required to initiate a rental but cards will not be charged for passes. The complimentary 24-hour Access Pass includes unlimited station-to-station trips of 60 minutes or less. Trips exceeding 60 minutes will incur overage fees that will be covered by the customer.

I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
