Ideas in your bus stops
In a space of exchange and continuous movement, comes Ideas in your bus stop, a project that began to create artistic interventions in the bus stops of Santiago.
This initiative was developed after the motivation and participation of the same neighbors, who through techniques such as: Grafitti, Mosaico and Collage, managed to capture themes typical of their daily life and identity. The works were guided by a group of artists, to create with the community a bond of closeness and belonging with the infrastructure of the Public Transport System.
Through a pilot project, in 2010 the first artistic-citizen intervention was carried out in a bus stop. In 2012, the Metropolitan Public Transport Board, DTPM, consolidated this initiative by working together with a group of artists.
In this way, thanks to the Ideas on your bus stop,Santiago has bus stops intervened in more than 20 communes of the city.
This initiative was awarded two important awards: in 2014 it won the Avonni Award in the Public Innovation Category, which rewards the ability of regional, local and public governments to efficiently manage their resources to develop initiatives that better serve the community.
Also, in May 2013 the project reached the prize in the Costumer Service category, in the second version of the competition organized by the International Public Transport Association (UITP).
Ideas in your bus stop contributed to the communities participating in the workshops that allowed the intervention of the stops, generating among the neighbors a sense of belonging with the infrastructure of public surface transport, motivating their care.
