A BUS company’s competition result was music to the ears of Nicole Muir when she won a brand new iPod.
Arriva West Scotland challenged their young passengers to collect as many child day tickets as possible.
And there was an iPod shuffle up for grabs as the winner’s prize.
Nicole, of Renfrew Road, Paisley, earned the prize after collecting 56 of the £1 tickets during the school summer holidays.
Paisley Grammar School pupil Nicole, 12, stacked up her stubs by using services to get out and about and meet friends.
She said: “At first, I didn’t believe I had won.
“It was such a surprise.
“I regularly use the bus to travel to school and for going out.
“I’m delighted because my older sisters have iPods and now I have one of my own. It’s great.”
Roanna Laverty, marketing and information officer for Arriva Scotland West, said they received a huge amount of entries for the contest.
She added: “There was a fantastic response to the kid-for-a-quid summer offer and we think it has been a great success.
“We are committed to making public transport as efficient, reliable and cost effective as possible.
“And the child day ticket is one of a range of multi-journey tickets designed to encourage more people to opt for public transport and get out and about.”
