Supported by The Social Innovation Exchange, Transit Tales is a multimedia storytelling project about how public transit affects the lives of people in Allegheny County.  In partnership with the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group and Pittsburghers for Public Transit, Bricolage Production Company is recording stories about public transit from all kinds of people– riders, non-riders, and transit workers- and then sharing them through radio, the Pittsburgh City Paper, social media, and live performance.

Counting on the power of storytelling to connect communities, Transit Tales will share the social, environmental, and economic impact of public transit in our lives. Story collection has already begun and will continue through the end of summer. Transit Tales wants to hear from you!.
