Do you think that bus stops are a little bland and boring? Well thanks to the City of Melville, that could soon be a thing of the past.

The program is encouraging students, artists, and community groups to adopt a bus shelter and transform it into a local landmark.

Currently there are approximately 40 bus stop shelters already converted under the program, and that number is looking to continue to grow.

Jesus Ziegler, an artist from Attadale, is the latest addition to the bus stop transformation.

“After reading about it I started spotting bus shelters that had already been transformed all over the City and that motivated me to apply.”

The materials for the shelter transformations, are generously supplied by the City of Melville, but only after the artist/s have had their project approved.

“I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and the feedback from other people has been really good.”
