On The Bus

Our Work Life was designed for the adspace in SamTrans commuter buses, buses that travel the San Francisco Bay Area, back and forth from downtown San Francisco through San Mateo County to Palo Alto. The project calls riders' attention to their unique situation: sharing a period of their day with other workers, including the bus operator, as they travel to and from work. Riders will be able to collect "transfers." Playing on the idea of real bus transfers, handouts will be available in the rack behind the drivers' seat. The transfers lead viewers to further exploration of resources on labor art and transit art. The content of the transfers is available on this website under Resources.
