​The artist designed bus shelters modeled after vintage radio sets produced from the 1920s to the 1960s. Each bears the phrase, “Tune in to Public Transportation" and one shelter includes it in Spanish as “Sintonizate al Transporte Publico." The shelters reflect a unique take on old table-top radios. They are made of self-weathering welded steel with perforated seating made of painted steel.  The radio knobs on the shelters are illuminated to give a nostalgic glow after dark..   ​
