Salvage Bush Stadium seats and
repurpose them at bus stops
We've almost doubled the number of benches at Indianapolis bus stops using a resource the city already had. To date, 31 stops have been installed, serving roughly 220,000 rides annually. Our goal is 42, and we're well on our way.
. . .
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 31 PUPSTOPS, and are on track to reach our goal of 42 by the end of 2014. In two years, we will have doubled the number of benches at bus stops using a resource the city already had.
WE THINK THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME.
