Design Your Dream Bus
Create a bus with no limits. Are your seats inflatable like a pool floatie, the same material as your favorite blanket, or somewhere in between? Are there no windows at all, or only windows and no walls? What kind of fuel does it use? Is it big enough for you and your family, or you and your town? Think of your ideal journey, the bus you’d want to take you there, and let your art do the rest of the talking.
As you design your Dream Bus, remember that Pierce Transit’s goal is to provide reliable, safe, and equitable means of transportation to our diverse communities. We also have a commitment to reducing our environmental impact. We have buses that run on compressed natural gas as well as electric buses. In a few years, we will also have articulated buses (two coaches long) providing quick service along main routes as part of our Bus Rapid Transit lines. Which type of Pierce Transit bus will you choose when designing your Dream Bus? Or will your bus be the first of its kind?
The grand prize winner will have their artwork displayed on a Pierce Transit bus and featured in the September/October 2022 edition of South Sound Magazine. The runner ups will have their artwork displayed on bus shelters throughout Pierce County. The first 25 participants will receive a Summer Youth Pass, which provides unlimited free bus rides on Pierce Transit from June 1 through August 31, 2022. All participants will receive a Pierce Transit goodie bag as an appreciation for their creative efforts.
