Milwaukee Public Schools team up to create engaging bus stops

Pop Stop murals, part of the MCTS Bus Shelter Art Project, feature interactive games and activities to engage children outside the classroom.

Milwaukee Public Schools is a partner on a project to design educational bus stop displays for children to enjoy while waiting for the bus, CBS 58 reported.

Two dozen bus stops around Milwaukee will be decorated with murals featuring interactive games.

The partnership involves the Milwaukee County Transit System, Milwaukee Public Schools, the advertising agency BVK and Milwaukee’s Office of Early Childhood Initiatives.

“We designed each shelter with several criteria in mind,” Gary Mueller, founder and creative director of BVK, told the television station. “The activities include counting, identifying shapes, objects, colors, foods. Some are designed around reading stories or scavenger hunts. Some even include physical activity.”

All 24 murals are set to be finished within the next two weeks.
