Are you interested adopting a Salisbury Transit bus shelter to help keep Salisbury a beautiful and clean place to live, work and visit?
Salisbury Transit’s Adopt-a-Shelter program relies upon community partnerships to help maintain bus shelter throughout the City. Individuals or groups can apply to adopt an STS bus shelter for a commitment of one year. The adopter pledges to keep their shelters clean, performing the tasks listed below.
Salisbury Transit will publicly recognize bus stop adopters for their contribution to the community with a sign at the bus stop and recognition on STS’s web site.
The Adopt-a-Shelter program is currently open to civic associations, individuals and leasing agencies who own apartment complexes in The City of Salisbury.
