Gingerbread Bus and Train Offer Festive Rides

To celebrate the season, Valley Metro presents a holiday bus and light rail train wrapped in a decorative gingerbread theme. The wrap, sponsored by CBS Outdoor, BP Graphics and 3M, is giving joy to many Valley residents. The festive decor continues inside both the bus and train, offering riders a cheerful setting as they travel to their destinations.

Anyone who posts a picture of the gingerbread-themed bus or train will automatically be entered into a drawing for a $50 Target gift card. Pictures can be posted by December 24 to Facebook and Twitter #gingerbreadrides.
