(INDIANAPOLIS) - IndyGo is implementing a new adopt-a-shelter program.

Similar to adopt-a-highway, individuals, groups or businesses can sign up to maintain one of the 200 bus stop shelters in Indy.

Working through the Crooked Creek Northwest Community Development Corporation, Brebeuf students Zach Richardson and Laura Appelt saw the need for shelters along the Michigan road route.

Appelt says the school's bus shelter action team applied for a $5,000 grant to help IndyGo maintain and beautify the shelters. Brebeuf's conservation club became the first shelter adopter.

John Hall of the Greater Indy Neighborhoods Initiative complimented the students on their leadership.

Shelter adopters monitor the shelter and help make improvements. They also get their name on the front of the shelter.

The IndyGo web site has more information.
