Art on the Bus
A partnership between Creative Action and Capital Metro meant to educate young people about smart transit through the power of the arts.
For a second year, Capital Metro partnered with Creative Action to facilitate an art contest with local public elementary schools that included the opportunity to showcase student art CapMetro’s electric buses and the agency’s pickup vehicles.
This project is part of a larger partnership dedicated to educating young people about the environmental benefits of public transportation, specifically zero-emissions buses.
For this year’s contest, several amazing schools applied and the transit agency and nonprofit chose four schools to participate in the partnership:
- C C Mason Elementary School, Leander ISD
- Bluebonnet Trail Elementary School, Manor ISD
- Del Valle Elementary School, Del Valle ISD
- Norman-Sims Elementary School, Austin ISD
