Yellow Line Radio

Project Brief

The yellow school bus has been around for over 50 years, yet it remains as a neglected environment. It was designed to prioritize the safety, but fails to address the implications of the physical and social environments of the bus. We collaborated with Woodland Hills School District of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania to transform the yellow school bus experience, while addressing the district’s issues with bullying, boredom and harassment.

Spring 2018
4 month long project

Medium
Video, print media and photomontages

Team
This project was developed in collaboration with Aisha Dev and guided by Kristen Hughes.

Concept

How might we innovate on existing practices of students to cultivate a more wholesome bus experience? The current use of music and technology can be transformed to a bus radio network. With the Bus Driver as the host of the Yellow Line Radio, students can upload their created music content and contribute to their bus ride community.
