Bus Roots is a living garden on the rooftops of city buses.
It brings life to neglected spaces and provides an opportunity for people to stop for a second and remember that living around nature can actually help lead a healthier life.

It repurposes the technology and materials used in the installation of living roofs in buildings and houses in the hopes of multiplying the benefits that living roofs bring to the environment.
