You may have noticed a few buses in Airdrie looking quite sharp lately. Well, they're in the midst of a makeover.

If you're wondering what the new design on the buses looks like, city councillor Ron Chapman explains.

"The buses are looking amazing with the new wraps they've put on them. They've put maps on them and so each new bus has a different area of Airdrie as a map on the outside of the bus. If you look at them closely, it looks pretty cool!"

Chapman says that a few have the wrap job finished and then there are some plain white ones which have not been wrapped yet. 

The city is also adding six buses to their fleet, so it's a great opportunity to design a new wrap for the buses.

So when will the redesign be completely finished?

"It's all going to be done in time for our youth to ride the buses for free in July and August," says Chapman. 

The City of Airdrie announced in 2018 that youth aged six to eighteen years will get to use Airdrie Transit for free during the months of July and August in 2019. For more information on this youth program, click here.
