You could win $500 in MARTA’s free upcoming annual scavenger hunt

MARTA’s fifth annual “Dump the Pump” scavenger hunt will take place next month.

Teams of four will follow clues placed in rail stations while figuring out riddles based on Atlanta’s history, facts and general trivia, according to a news release.

Each member of the winning team will win a $500 Visa gift card. Members on the second, third, fourth and fifth place teams will win $350, $300, $200 and $150 gift cards, respectively.

MARTA general manager and CEO Keith Parker said the scavenger hunt can be an opportunity for customers to travel to parts of the city that may be a deviation from their normal commute.

“This year’s scavenger hunt will uniquely combine Atlanta’s rich history, major attractions and of course multiple MARTA stations to create a memorable and entertaining event,” Parker said in a statement.

All teams must pre-register via the website. Registration ends at midnight on June 5, or once all slots are filled. The maximum number of teams allowed is 50, and participants must be 18 with a photo ID.

The free scavenger hunt begins at noon on June 10; registration starts at 10:30 a.m. at the Five Points station’s plaza level. The prizes will be awarded at 5:30 p.m.

The gift cards are provided by sponsor Outfront Media.
