2023 Transit Pass Design Contest Banner



CATS invites North and South Carolina residents to submit original artwork with the theme: Go Green on Transit! for this year’s Transit Pass Design Contest. Three winners will be selected to have their artwork printed on Local, Express and Express Plus passes for the 2024 calendar year. 

Entries are due to CATS by Friday, June 9, 2023 at 5 p.m. and will be judged by a committee consisting of transit staff members, city officials and local art professionals. Entries will be ranked to identify first, second and third place winners based on the following criteria:

1. Does the design address the theme and promote multi-modal transportation in Charlotte in specific or general terms?

2. Is the design eye-catching and well-composed?

3. Is text absent from the design?


In addition to having their artwork printed on 2024 transit passes, each winner will receive a monthly transit pass of their choice and a prize. First place will receive a Fitbit Inspire 3 Health & Fitness Tracker, second place will receive an AmazonEcho Show 8 and third place will receive a Stanley Tumbler.
