ART's Adopt-a-Stop Program Expands to All Routes

November 20, 2012

Arlington Transit's Adopt-a-Stop program has recently been expanded to include bus stops along all of ART's 13 routes. When the program started in May, it initially focused on bus stops along the ART 51, 52, 53 and 61 routes to see how well the program would be received. The decision was recently made to open the program up to the remaining ART bus routes.

To date, 14 ART bus stops have been adopted. Adopters include individuals, families, a school, a church and community groups.

The Adopt-a-Stop program relies on community partnerships to help maintain ART bus stops throughout the County. Individuals or groups can adopt an ART bus stop for one year. The adopter agrees to regularly maintain the bus stop by removing trash and snow and reporting any graffiti. In return, Arlington Transit will recognize the adopter with a sign posted at the adopted bus stop.

Visit arlingtontransit.com/adopt-a-stop to learn more about the program and view a map of the stops that are available to adopt.

Help make a visible impact in the community and sign-up to adopt and ART bus stop today!
