About this project

For summer 2011 we will offer relief from the Brooklyn summer heat by transporting scorched city folks to Jacob Riis/ Fort Tilden beach. Towel toters will be whisked away in a painted bus that will drop them in the sand after a fun, quick trip. 

We have already found the bus, but need the funds to purchase and insure it. The summer is now in full swing so theres no time to waste! Our goal is to get YOU to the BEACH ASAP. 

Brooklyn Beach Bus patrons can look forward to these things:

+ surfing cat rooftop installation 
+ every rider gets to attach an object of their choice to the bus 
+ song menu - riders get one song of their choice per trip 
+ zinc nosed drivers in swimsuits 
+ tv playing summer movie clips 
+ sunscreen dispenser 
+ mini concession
