IDEA

Salvage Bush Stadium seats and

repurpose them at bus stops

throughout Indianapolis.

IMPACT

We've more than doubled the number of benches at Indianapolis bus stops using a resource the city already had. To date, 45 stops have been installed, serving roughly 220,000 rides annually.

 
BEFORE.

AFTER!

DETAILS

After salvaging roughly 9,000 Bush Stadium seats in 2012, through a collaboration with Ecolaborative, RecycleForce, and Indianapolis Fabrications, PUP began working with IndyGo to begin installing refurbished seats at bus stops throughout Indianapolis. Before we started, of the nearly 4000 bus stops in Indianapolis, only 42 had a bench. Since then, we've added 45 PUPSTOPS, surpassing our goal of 42. In three years, we have doubled the number of benches at bus stops using a resource the city already had.

 

WE THINK THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME.
