Art Takes a Bus Ride

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 contest has been cancelled. We look forward to holding it again next year. 

SamTrans, in partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education, is excited to be a part of the 15th Annual Art Takes a Bus Ride contest.

For the first time, Art Takes a Bus Ride gives 1st -12th graders a chance to have their artwork displayed on the side of a SamTrans bus for an entire year! The student art also will be displayed on ad cards inside SamTrans buses. Art Takes a Bus Ride engages students in their community and keeps art in the classroom. 

This year's contest theme is Ride for the Planet, Ride SamTrans.
