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 was Safe Routes to School. See this year's ad cards, featuring all 6 winning works of art HERE.
