One of Thunder Bay Transit’s 40-foot buses will have a new paint job this fall — which will catch the eye and promote unity within the city.
A new art bus will get rolled out with the theme Mamawe – All Together.
It’s the third art bus in the city. One was created in 2015, and another was unveiled in 2020 for the city’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The latter is still in service, as the wrap used for the artwork has a lifespan of two to three years.
“We are on Indigenous land and we need to honour the land that we’re on, and I think that we’ll create beautiful visuals,” said Shelby Gagnon, one of the artists involved in the project.
“It’s very community-based, so I hope it brings some healing or good feelings and positivity to the city.”
