About Poetry Moves on Transit

Poetry Moves on Transit is an Edmonton Poetry Festival project that puts short poems into public transit vehicles. Three times a year we circulate a new flight of four poems in 800 ETS buses. Poems selected for the project, funded primarily by the Edmonton Arts Council, are also viewable online on the ETS website.
