LexTran opens 4th artistic shelter on U. of Ky. campus



Lexington, Ky.-based LexTran and Art in Motion officials recently dedicated the city's fourth artistic bus shelter, which is located on the University of Kentucky campus.

Designed and built by Lexington firm Prajna Design and Construction, Gardenstop not only provides shelter for passengers but also incorporates living plants, emphasizing the artfulness of native flora while increasing the positive environmental impacts of the structure itself.

The modular green roof uses locally grown plants and diverts storm water runoff while integrating a host of other sustainable features such as recycled, salvaged or reclaimed materials.

During a ceremony celebrating the opening, LexTran GM Rocky Burke expressed his gratitude to all organizations and individuals who made Gardenstop a possibility, including the University of Kentucky and Vice President for Facilities Management Bob Wiseman.
