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.

BicyTaxi’s website explains that “it successfully fuses environmentally-friendly transportation with increased awareness of a top advertising medium.”

The bike cabs, which seat two passengers in addition to the driver and include molded fiberglass shells, will be operating from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Thursday until Nov. 2, 2006.
