StreetsblogMASS's first ever transit bingo kicks off this September 1st.

From exploring new places by transit, to treating yourself to a bike ride over a pretty bridge, Streetsblog Bingo gives you prompts to keep you out and exploring this September as we ease into the fall.

Feel free to bring a human or furry friend along on your adventures as you make your way through a row, a column, or even the entire board.

Here’s how to get started: 

Get four spots in a row – up, down, or diagonal. This can be done on your own, with your family, or a friend or two. Choose carefully! If you win, you’ll need to share your prize with your partners.

You’ll have the entire month of September 1st (Thursday) through September 30th (Friday) to make your way through the activities.
