Route Scout

Have you noticed the lovely painted traffic signal control boxes around town? The Muncie Arts & Culture Council has brought this exciting and popular movement to Muncie with Box! Box!, “a movement to develop attractive, vibrant places that reflect the culture of the area.” (

We at MITS are here for it! To show our support and gratitude for this artistic addition to the Muncie environment, and to do something fun where everyone can participate, we are hosting a contest for the astute observer!

MITS will post close-up photos of a painted traffic signal control box in Muncie that sits along a MITS bus route, and post a monthly clue package on the MITS website and social media. Participants (you do not have to ride to participate) must figure out which box the pictures are revealing, and then determine which bus route OR which intersection the box resides upon. Then go to the MITS website and enter their information and guess for a chance to win a prize. For another chance, take a selfie with the box and post it on social media with the #routescoutmuncie.

December is the last month of Route Scout, thank you to all who explored Muncie with MITS! Stayed tuned for more fun contests from MITS.
