Individuals or groups can apply to adopt an ART bus stop for a commitment of one year. The adopter pledges to maintain their adopted bus stop and keep it clean. In return, adopters will be publicly recognized with a sign at the adopted bus stop and recognition on ART's web site.

The program also includes the Student SmarTrip card, which provides Arlington elementary, middle and high school students free fare when they ride the ART bus.

Art on the ART Bus
