The Roundup -

Enter Name Bus Contest


You will soon see some new and fun names on the buses and vans running around the area.

Richland County Transportation Service will celebrate its 10th anniversary this August and to celebrate, its running a contest to allow you to nickname each of their 10 vehicles.

Jodi Berry, RCTS director, said, “Before RCTS, the Commission on Aging operated a bus called the “Richland Roundup”. Once the service went public, that name disappeared for marketing reasons. Now that we have been around for an entire decade and people know the bus isn’t just for the elderly anymore, we’d like to bring the names back. We thought this would be a fun way for our passengers to put their stamp on our system.”

The contest details are as follows:

• Name suggestions will be taken until July 10. You can submit your suggestion to or on the website; the top entries will be posted to the website

• Beginning July 11, you can go to the website and vote for your favorite name—you can vote one time per day until July 24th.

On July 25, the winners will be announced. The top 10 names will show up on the RCTS vehicles with the top five also receiving a pair of Richland County Fair Buttons. The person who submitted the top voted name suggestion will receive two complete fair packages including a fair button, Chris Young concert ticket, and a ticket for each night of the rodeo.

Contest name submissions should highlight the best of Richland County and/or RCTS. RCTS reserves the right to reject any name suggestions that could be considered offensive or in poor taste.
