Litter has no place at the bus stop, and the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) started a Program to keep their stops clean and sparkly.

Now, MTA bus riders can take ownership of the cleanliness of their respective bus stops and help keep them looking nice and clean. The Maryland Transit Administration’s Adopt-A-Stop program, which kicked off back in August 2016 as a joint effort between the MTA and the University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center  is an easy way to get involved with the community by allowing riders to “adopt a local bus stop.” 

This “statewide movement to sustain public transportation ridership, reduce pollution and keep the community beautiful for years to come” is completely free to join, and the MTA will even provide all the necessary cleaning supplies. Adopters just need to volunteer their time at least twice a month.

All volunteers will get a sign of recognition installed at the adopted stop and a recognition certificate after two months of successful adoption.

Interested in adopting a stop near you? There are a good 4,500 stops that could use some love. Click here to fill out the application. 

Anyone out there in Commuter Land already adopt a stop? We’d love to hear from you. 

Happy Commuting!
