I Love Transit Week 2010: transit haiku on our TV ad screens!

Aha! The two winners from our transit haiku contest are now on TV ad screens on the Expo/Millennium Line!

Congratulations to Peter Brouwer and L. Ryan for submitting the winning haiku. You can see Peter’s haiku in the video above—it reads:

what a rainy day
crazy drivers everywhere
sweet rest on the bus

Read on to see L. Ryan’s haiku and the rest of the entrants!

Check out L. Ryan’s haiku in the video above, which plays on the imagery of the SkyBridge. It reads:

Silver dragons claw
Sky, wind from water spirit
Long chime destiny

And here are the rest of the entries… thanks so much to everyone who took the time to enter!

The ride continues…

Waiting for my bus?

Hmmm… no Viagra required? ;-), I think you’re going to have to explain that one a bit!
