Long Beach Transit Salutes Veterans

LBT salutes Veterans both in the communities we serve and on the LBT team. LBT has over 40 employees who proudly served in the U.S. Armed Forces. To all those who have served, and those who continue to serve, Happy Veterans Day!

First Street Transit Gallery
Public Art Installation
LBT invites you to virtually visit or to take a safe and physically-distanced tour of our First Transit Gallery. You may have already noticed the permanent installation of colorful mosaics and poems written by Long Beach locals featured since its renovation in 2011. As an enhancement to the Gallery, LBT will now partner with local cultural and educational organizations to feature quarterly installations of artwork from the community.
LBT has partnered up with the Arts Council for Long Beach for the inaugural community art installation, featuring mosaics made by local students through the Eye on Design program. Eye on Design guides students through a 15-week course that has them study public art and research their neighborhoods to create pieces that affect positive change.

To see the pieces featured in the gallery and learn more about the art work, visit
Watch this video to learn more about the project and LBT’s support of the arts.

Long Beach has a great music scene, with plenty of popular musicians having roots in the LBC. Jenni Rivera, The Carpenters and Snoop Dogg are just a few claims to fame! The opportunity to create and play live music is what drew Brendan Burns here from Pasadena one year ago.
