As part of the Better Bus Stops and Public Art in Transit programs, Metro Transit is seeking proposals from local artists to design bus shelter glass clings to add placemaking/community identity to bus stops in their neighborhood. Artists will engage their neighborhood community to design and create these shelter clings. Metro Transit will coordinate installation.
Eligible bus stops
Metro Transit has identified bus stops that are eligible for this program. All eligible stops are within the boundaries of the Ladders of Opportunity grant, which is defined by areas of concentrated poverty where at least 50 percent of residents are people of color.
To focus improvements at stops with high ridership, eligible stops are used by an average of 30 or more bus riders daily. All eligible stops have bus shelters.
Proposed projects must be implemented at one of these bus stops listed in this Excel spreadsheet.
