The adopter pledges to keep their adopted bus stop clean and perform the duties listed below. Bus stop adopters will be publicly recognized with a sign at the adopted bus stop and recognition on ART's web site.

ART only bus stops along ART's 15 routes can be adopted. See a list of the bus stops you can adopt.
