Urban Fold

Tiny Bus for a Tiny City

Wannado City in Sawgrass Mills, FL, is a model city in a warehouse that gives kids a chance to play at having jobs. Broward County Transit has chipped in a mini bus, which drives around the city introducing kids to public transit.

The bus will offer three tours, said Bruce Glorsky, sales and marketing director for Wannado City. An Action and Adventure tour will pass the rock climbing wall and paleontology and archaeology exhibits. The Fame and Fortune tour will swing by the jeweler, acting studio and theater. A City and Industry tour will take visitors by the courthouse and police and fire departments.

There are three bus stops and one main bus terminal, each with a video component that will offer a behind-the-scenes look at mass transit, Glorsky said.

A video system on the bus will welcome visitors, tell them a little about BCT, then provide the audio for the tour, he said.

The bus, which belongs to Wannado City and was previously used for a dinosaur tour, has been redesigned as a BCT Breeze bus, Glorsky said."
