Residents can pay to help install, maintain transit furniture

The City of Phoenix Public Transit Department is piloting a new sponsorship program for transit furniture installation and upkeep. In an effort to aid interested individuals in contributing to public transit, the Bus Bench Memorial Program allows for many levels of support, from monthly cleaning of bus stops, to installation of transit furniture at suitable locations. The pilot bus bench memorial program grew from a resident’s suggestion, and is intended to generate additional transit system revenue.

"I would like to thank the District 6 citizen who brought this idea to my office. It is because of resident ideas that new programs like this one are possible,” said Councilman Sal DiCiccio. “I hope residents throughout the city will choose to get involved with the Bus Bench program."

To participate in the program fill out an interest form online, at
, or call the department with questions at 602-262-7242. A wide range of sponsorships are available, a list is available online. Prices may vary depending on furniture type and location.
