ARTRANSIT features posters combining poems and images by Australian poets and artists. Throughout the 1990s these posters were displayed on buses and ferries in Sydney and Newcastle, engaging commuters with evocative, intriguing and unexpected words and images. The goal of the series was to bring recent poetry and art to new audiences.

The project was highly successful and generated great interest and even spontaneous discussion amongst commuters.

Amongst the artists and writers whose work is included are Michael Leunig, Andrew Denton, Les Wicks, Philip Hammial, Pamela Brown, Alan Jefferies, Kurt Brereton, and JoAnne Duggan.
