Legal fare dodging

Legal fare dodging

Launched in January, Promobilletes sells  public transportation tickets in Barcelona at discounted rates of 10 to 50 per cent thanks to sponsorship from advertisers.
As well as benefiting travellers, the brands sponsoring the tickets gain exposure on the Promobilletes website and can send personalized notes out with the tickets to travellers making purchases.
Promobilletes brings commuters respite from increasing ticket prices while giving advertisers an opportunity to generate considerable exposure.

Why it matters

Sponsorship in this case is a win-win solution, as commuters and advertisers alike reap a benefit. It’s a great strategy to demonstrate brand compromise with consumers. Can you think of ways how your brand can gain more visibility by providing a useful service to your consumers?

The currency of time

A southern Spanish village has started using a new currency, complementary to euros, called “Pitas”.  Pitas can be changed to euros or labour time, where one Pita is valued at one euro or six minutes of labour. So users of the currency can buy whatever they need and pay with 24 minutes of ironing or washing dishes if that is the value of the product or service.
 

To avoid seeing a devaluation of the currency, it must be used within the first 3 months or it loses 10% of its value.  It also has an expiration date and its total value will be lost if it’s not used within a year.
 

The village celebrated its 1st Pitas fair, a marketplace where people used euros or labour to obtain pitas or buy products they needed with the currency.
