2022 Finalists

Madison’s Poet Laureate and Metro Transit would like to thank everyone that submitted their work to the 2022 Bus Lines Poetry Contest!

The theme this year is "Dream a future." What would it look like for you? How do you see it? How would we take better care of all living creatures from trees to toads, owls to bats, human to human and all that breathes or is organic matter? What does your best future look like?

Eighteen poems were selected and transformed into works of art by Edgewood College Graphic Design Students. Unfortunately, poems will not be featured on the exterior of the buses this year, however, they will be displayed at the Pinney Library for the next few months. Stop by and check them out!
