T showcases museums' art on buses

Posted on October 20, 2009

[IMAGE]T-1.jpg[/IMAGE]Three buses depicting Fort Worth's art museums and iconic works from their collections recently hit the streets as part of a partnership between The T and the museums to encourage the public to "Ride the T" to the Cultural District.

"The Cultural District is one of our most popular destinations; nearly a half million people visit each year," says Dick Ruddell, president of The T. "We wanted to remind the public that riding The T is an easy and affordable option for visiting the museums."

The museums are offering bus riders special discounts with any of The T's local, day, weekly, monthly or regional passes -$2 off admission to the Modern and 10 percent off in the museum stores in the Kimbell and Carter the entire month of November.

Kimbell Art Museum director, Eric M. Lee, commented, "The world-class museums in our community are here for all to enjoy, and riding The T is an easy and environmentally friendly way to get to them. I eagerly await catching a glimpse of the stunning newly designed buses on the streets."
