Five artistic bus shelters have been placed throughout the Russell neighborhood providing public artwork, shelter for transit riders and improved neighborhood safety through additional lighting and other smart features. Three architectural groups – Luckett & Farley, VBNA and HDDS, Inc. – worked with community members to design the SmART Stops, which were placed in high-traffic TARC bus stop locations next to neighborhood institutions. All SmART Stop Shelters are completed and in use!
