These bus benches can be found around Carpinteria at all bus stops! Pictured top-left: Sara and Donna painting honeysuckle vines and butterflies.

The Bus Bench painting project is organized by Carpinteria Beautiful. MTD helps out by transporting the benches to and from the work area at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center on Linden Avenue, where they are sanded down and primed. We then invite the community to get creative and add their colorful designs.
