Lake Erie Transit debuts new bus wrap

Posted on June 5, 2009

[IMAGE]Lake-Erie-Bus2-full.jpg[/IMAGE]Monroe, Mich.-based Lake Erie Transit (LET) unveiled its "Flower Power" bus as the newest fully-wrapped vehicle in their fleet.  With design and implementation help from Sheroian Associates, located in Lambertville, the new bus is adorned with familiar ecological symbols of the late 1960's and early 1970's including, peace signs, smiley faces, recycle emblems, stylized hearts and brightly-colored daisies. 

A community bus tour stopping at various schools and places of interest is planned for early June.  The intent is to allow the community an up-close look at a vinyl bus wrap, answer questions about public transportation and hybrid technology, and to distribute themed promotional items. 

"The fully-wrapped buses have triggered a tremendous, positive response from our riders and the community.  People are calling for pick-ups and requesting one of the wrapped buses," says Mark Jagodzinski, General Manager of Lake Erie Transit. 

LET, which operates eight fixed-route buses, has served Monroe County since 1980.
