Creative Airdrie is teaming up with Airdrie Transit to put Airdrie artists in motion - literally. Chris MacIsaac, the City's transit coordinator, unveiled the program at CIty Hall on August 24.

The work of 22 local artists is featured on monthly transit passes over the next year. This is the first time Airdrie Transit has showcased local artistic work on transit passes.

Every time a transit pass is sold, the featured artist is promoted with an attached brochure letting riders know where to find the local artist and his or her work. Passes can be purchased this month at Airdrie City Hall, Genesis Place, Airdrie Co-op and the Calgary Transit Customer Service Centre in downtown Calgary.
