Adopt A Stop


Every SMART commute starts and ends at a bus stop. When we partner with volunteers in the community, we are able to keep those bus stops safe and clean not only for our riders, but also for the local neighborhood. By adopting a stop in your community, you are able to promote your group or business locally, while supporting public transit.  Your efforts help:

Stimulate your local economy

• Improve the appearance of your neighborhood

• Generate community pride and receive public recognition for your efforts

• Create a clean, safe and secure bus stop for all riders

When you adopt a stop, we recognize you with an Adopt-A-Stop sign and provide you with an introductory maintenance kit.  As an adoptee, you agree to keep the area clean of trash and to remove snow and ice in the winter for one year. As the eyes and ears in your community, you would call SMART if you see a broken window, missing trash cans or graffiti.  SMART will handle the repair and replacement of any structural items.

Adopt-A-Stop is a great, inexpensive way to support your local economy and provide a safe way for riders who live, work or visit your neighborhood. You will be recognized for your efforts with a personalized sign at the stop, be listed with the other Adopt-A-Stop sponsors on SMART’s website and be recognized through SMART’s social media.
