COLUMBIA — On Monday morning, Columbia Transit kicked-off another trivia challenge for their month-old FastCAT bus service after the last contest didn't produce a winner.

Columbia Transit hosted a FastCAT challenge beginning in August, but no one answered all five trivia questions correctly, "so we decided to try again," marketing specialist Christa Holtzclaw said. She added that "anyone who participated in that one can also participate again."

Columbia Transit will select three winners, one of whom will win an iPad 3. The other two will win a semester FASTpass worth $1o0, which provides access to unlimited rides on any Columbia Transit route.

Those interested in participating in the contest should follow @Columbia_MO_Bus on Twitter, answer at least one trivia challenge question correctly and include @Columbia_MO_Bus, as well as the FastCAT hashtag in their reply to the question.

The contest runs from Sept. 17 to 19. Columbia Transit will post questions twice per day, once in the morning and once in the early afternoon. Trivia challenge participants can increase their chances of winning by correctly answering additional questions. For every question answered correctly, the contestant's name is added to the drawing for the prizes.

As of Monday afternoon, Columbia Transit currently has 646 twitter followers. Ten people have thus far submitted answers to today's trivia question, which asked, "How much does it cost to transfer between FastCAT and any other Columbia Transit route?"

Columbia Transit will announce the winners and answers to the six questions on Thursday, Sept. 20.
