Adopt-A-Shelter

Get involved in your community

Adopt a shelter bus stop

Adopt-A-Shelter is a program that helps businesses, individuals, community organizations and schools make a real difference in their neighborhoods by "adopting" local bus shelters.

Metro Transit staff make regular visits to shelters (in some cases, daily) to make sure that they are clean and damage-free. An adopter assists us by alerting us to special maintenance needs and reporting vandalism or suspicious activity.


Benefits of Adopting-A-Shelter

When you or your group adopts a shelter, you’ll help us keep area bus shelters safe and clean. And the community will see you or your organization as a "good neighbor" that cares about its environment when we hang a sign with your name on the outside of the shelter. 


How to Adopt-A-Shelter

Let Metro Transit know you are interested in adopting a shelter by contacting Customer Relations by calling 612-373-3333. 

Provide the following information: 

  • Location of the shelter you or your organization wants to adopt

  • Bus stop number

  • Your name and contact information

We'll send you an agreement and answer your questions. Once a representative from your organization signs the agreement, we'll provide you with trash bags and safety training information.
