  • Key partners work together to enhance local community.
  • Art mural to be unveiled at Ayr Bus Station.

Stagecoach West Scotland will launch an art mural at Ayr Bus Station on Friday 31st October to improve the environment of Ayr Bus Station through the medium of art.

The mural was created by young people from STEP, supported by Ayr Renaissance, Community Safety and local artist Gillian Beech.

The theme of the artwork is “Welcome to Ayr” and showcases the local attractions and history of the town.  The mural which has been created using stencils and spray paint will provide an attractive welcome to regular travellers and tourists using the bus station.

Alison McCluskie, Operations Director, Stagecoach West Scotland said:

“Ayr Bus Station is an important part of the local community and is used by locals and visitors to Ayr on a daily basis. The partnership between our organisations has provided a positive activity for young people and created a piece of artwork which we hope will make the bus station more attractive to the people who use it.
