Is your organization looking for a great way to help keep Greensboro clean? You can Adopt-a-Stop!
The Adopt-a-Stop program gives community organizations and businesses the opportunity to partner with Greensboro Transit Authority (GTA) to help keep our city beautiful. Partners "adopt" a bus stop or shelter and agree to keep it clean throughout the year and report any observed damage.
What are the responsibilities of an Adopt-a-Stop partner?
Very simply, Adopt-a-Stop partners agree to pick up litter, report damage, and generally keep the area around the stop / shelter free of debris and unsightly clutter.
Is there a cost involved to become an Adopt-a-Stop partner?
There is no charge to become an Adopt-a-Stop partner. The only cost involved is for materials the partner chooses to use (garbage bags, plastic gloves, etc.) in clean-up efforts.
What recognition do Adopt-a-Stop partners receive?
A sign will be posted on the stop / shelter with the partner's name showing that the group is a GTA Adopt-a-Stop partner working to help keep Greensboro beautiful. GTA will also recognize new partners at monthly GTA board meetings and in other possible publicity venues.
How do we get started?
Submit a request online or call Kevin Elwood at 336-412-6309 to request an Adopt-a-Stop Partner Agreement package. Review and return the signed agreement and Safety Requirements form to GTA. Once approved, you are a GTA Adopt-a-Stop partner and can begin tending to your bus stop.
The Corporate Connections program provides businesses with an opportunity to partner with GTA to meet the transportation needs of employees. Visit the Corporate Connections page to learn more.

As a public service, GTA reaches out to our future riders with a free transit orientation program.
