Adopt-A-Stop Program Inspires Local Group to Reinvent Austin Bus Stop

Stop by the Capital Metro bus stop at Manor Road and Rogge Lane and you’re sure to do a double-take. Route 20 passengers have THE most cutting-edge stop in town thanks to an Adopt-A-Stop collaboration between GRoWERS, Green Doors and Capital Metro.

The stop is an Austin original from top to bottom. The structure itself features a unique metal art design by Stanley Studio, led by Green Doors. If that wasn’t enough, GRoWERS stepped in and did what they do best—creating a living space on the roof, complete with prickly pear and agave plants!

This project wouldn’t have been possible without some very creative minds that chose to make a difference by Adopting-A-Stop, helping keep our community beautiful and cleaner.
