Brent bus passengers treated to free art exhbition on their journey
Project will project images on the top of shelters
Fares may be up but bus travellers in the borough will soon benefit from a free art exhibition while making their every day journeys.
Thanks to the Bus-Tops scheme, launched this year, a digital canvas showcasing work from internationally recognised artists will be hoisted on the top of London bus shelters throughout the borough.
Funded by the Arts Council England the project will see projected images and artistic objects lie flat on the top of shelters and stops giving top deck passengers an extra treat.
The initiative is taking place throughout 20 London boroughs and will run until September this year.
Currently confirmed for Brent are; stop 778 in The Mall of Kenton Road, stop 856 in Preston Hill, stop 3424 in Honeypot Lane, stop 733 in The Mall and stop 693 in Thyme Avenue all in the Kingsbury and Preston Road area.
However, residents can also choose for themselves which bus stops they would like to see transformed by visiting the official website and clicking on an interactive map of their area to see options.
