Art Takes a Bus Ride

SamTrans, in partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education, is excited to be a part of the 12th Annual Art Takes a Bus Ride contest. This year, we have partnered with the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) San Mateo County Program to encourage and enable children to walk, bike and take public transit to school. 

Art Takes a Bus Ride gives 1st -6th 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 Safe Routes to School. Submissions are due Feb. 26, 2016 and the winning entries will be announced at a special event at Peninsula Museum of Art on May 1, 2016 from 2-4 p.m. Peninsula Museum of Art is located at 1777 California Dr, Burlingame, CA 94010.

Winners will also be recognized at the SamTrans Board Meeting on May 4, 2016.
