You, Me and the Bus Public Art Installation

Athens is home to some of the coolest bus shelters around, thanks to the Athens Area Arts Council, Athens-Clarke County Unified Government, and Athens Transit Service. Eight winning designs to be installed in fall 2009 pay tribute to the Athens music scene and join prior winning designs along the bus route. "You, Me and the Bus" seeks to integrate utilitarian public services with artistic ingenuity and inspiration.

Named one of the "World's Coolest Bus Stops" by

"You, Me and the Bus II" winning designs
