MTA Asks People, Communities To Adopt-A-Stop

CREATED Jun 4, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dozens of people and businesses have taken part in the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Adopt-A-Stop program.

Officials said some 60 stops have already been adopted, including one along the 28th connector project that has been designed to look like public art. Engineering and Design Firm Parsons Brinckerhoff adopted that one along with two others.

The program is designed to help neighborhoods put their best foot forward, and all adoptees get their name on a sign on the bus stop.

“All we ask is that you come in and once a week-- check the bus stop, pick up the litter. We will provide you with the garbage bags, the gloves, the safety vests, the litter grabbers, some safety training, and then it’s up to you,” said Cary Street with the MTA. “We would just like you to give back to your community in this way. With more than 1,000 bus stops in Nashville, one of them has got to be close by.”
