Athens News Matters: ACAC and Athens Transit Partner to Beautify Bus Shelters

By now, most Athenians have gotten used to seeing bus shelters that are enhanced by the work of local artists. But where did these shelters come from, and will more appear in the future?

Marc Beechuk, former chair of the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission, and Rachel Hopkins, marketing coordinator for Athens Transit, join Alexia Ridley to answer those questions.

Athens Transit is a financial supporter of WUGA.

Alexia Ridley joined WUGA as Television and Radio News Anchor and Reporter in 2013. When WUGA TV concluded operations, she became the primary Reporter for WUGA Radio. Alexia came to Athens from Macon where she served as the News Director and show host for WGXA TV. She's a career journalist and Savannah native hailing from the University of Michigan. However, Alexia considers herself an honorary UGA DAWG!
