2019 Photo Contest: Transit Through the Seasons


Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, Who’s the “fare-est” of them all?


6/24/19 -- Submit photos of your vehicle, staff, and/or riders against a rural backdrop that depict the beauty of your area through the seasons.  Does your bus shine in the summer sun, or does your shuttle drive by a river flanked by spring blooms?  We’re looking for examples of photos that show how stunning riding on transit can be.
