    They have done so in Pittsburgh. My son lived there for a while and the buses are painted all colors. I thought it was the best thing I saw there and every visit I made I took more photos. Here is my first impression —https://claudiamcgillart.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/the-city-bus-and-art/

    Thank you. I used a photo I’d taken of a student at University of Pittsburgh as the model for this tile, but the buses in Pittsburgh really are pink (and all other colors, they paint them to look great!)

    I love that! All cities should take note. Although the MTA is so busy just trying to make the trains and buses run at all, they probably wouldn’t even consider it at the moment. (K)

    I’m not sure how these multi-colored buses came about, they are not new-looking, so I guess they’ve been around a while. No one else seems to make a big deal about them but I think they are an attraction and they sure do brighten things up on chilly winter days and in the hot summer, too.

    These are fun. I really like the deeply black doors in the train in the first tile. It seems to me that the people are stepping into endless possibilities when they board that train.

    Thank you. I love transportation-focused pictures and I am especially happy with the pink bus, inspired by the colorful buses of Pittsburgh.
