A bus stop is a designated place where buses stop for passengers to get on and off. Imagine waiting for the bus with no shelter on a cold and rainy day while carrying bags of groceries. The purpose of this project is to transform a bus stop by providing shelter for passengers while bringing awareness to the need for safe spaces in our community in collaboration with Ozark Regional Transit and local art partners.
