Chase credit card ads roll out on bike cabs

Chase Credit Card Services is marketing its credit card products to college students in Ann Arbor, Mich., by providing free bike taxi rides.

Chase has contracted New York-based bike taxi company BicyTaxi to provide rides around Ann Arbor free of charge.  Chase has equipped each bike cab with a stereo that plays a recording about Chase's +1 credit card program -- a student credit card program and joint venture with, the popular online networking website.  The cabs also display Chase ads on their sides.
