by MCS Staff

Per WMATA: On Tuesday, April 25, Metro’s Art in Transit program will reveal three Earth Day designed buses that are wrapped in original artwork created by local budding artists in kindergarten to sixth grade. The unveiling will take place at Metro Headquarters, 300 7th Street SW, Washington, D.C. at 3 p.m. and each bus will be placed in service showcasing the artists work. Customers can use Metro’s special tracker to locate each bus once it goes into service. A globe will identify each Earth Day Metrobus throughout the system. “I’m truly impressed by the creativity and ingenuity of these young artists who used their talents to celebrate the role public transportation plays in creating a more sustainable, healthier and cleaner environment,” said Metro General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Randy Clarke.

In honor of Earth Day, a total of 240 submissions were received from young artists throughout the region. Of the numerous submissions, 15 drawings, paintings and digital artworks were selected, capturing their interpretation on the role public transportation plays in protecting our environment, combatting climate change, supporting sustainable and livable communities. This year’s Earth Day Metrobuses will feature artwork by the following young artists:
