LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – TARC Wants you to design a bus poster for them, but this year they want to it to be all about safety.

This year’s theme, “Look Alive Louisville,” focuses on pedestrian and vehicle safety. TARC says it was based on the commitment by Louisville Metro Public Works and the Transit Authority to help encourage kids and adults to aim for safe practices.

“TARC values the safety of pedestrians and passengers,” Executive Director Barry Barker said. “Our aim is to increase the awareness of safe practices with this partnership.”

TARC and Louisville Metro’s Public Works and Assets are partnering this year for the 17th annual Design-a-Bus contest, featuring artwork by schoolchildren throughout the Louisville area.

The theme “Look Alive Louisville” is based on the commitment by both organizations to help promote pedestrian and vehicle safety.

The 12 winners will be chosen to have their posters displayed on a TARC bus, and winners and their adult guests will be invited to participate in the Pegasus parade celebrating their victory.
