CCRTA debuts buses honoring Selena Quintanilla Perez
Corpus Christi, TX – April 18, 2016 – The Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority is debuting two buses honoring Selena Quintanilla Perez.
The new bus wraps, provided by Iconinc Sign Group of Corpus Christi and designed in partnership with the Quintanilla family, are a community donation made by both the CCRTA and Iconic Sign Group.
“It is a privilege for CCRTA to have the opportunity to honor one of our own”, comments Jorge Cruz-Aedo, CCRTA Chief Executive Officer.
Iconic Sign Group has been a longtime p[referred vendor of the CCRTA, providing wraps for buses, benches and bus shelters. Along with the bus wraps, several bus benches in high-volume CCRTA rider areas in Corpus Christi also will be adorned with the designs honoring the Queen of Tejano.
“I hope everyone here in our city and all those who are visiting will lokg at the buses and benches with a smile on their face and a sense of pride knowing Selena was one of their own”, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga said. Arriaga acknowledged and thanked Ray Hernandez of Iconic Sign Group for his idea to wrap the buses, as well as the CCRTA for their partnership in bringing it to fruition.
As well as providing transportation to the many CCRTA riders in the area, one of the buses will appear in the annual Buc Days Illuminated Night Parade, complete with custom LED lighting and a playlist of Selena’s top hits. This bus also will be promoting the upcoming Fiesta de la Flor, a signature Corpus Christi event honoring Selena on May 6-7, hosted by the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The Selena-wrapped buses are estimated to remain part of the CCRTA fleet until October 2016 and will assist in transporting both locals and visitors throughout the city of Corpus Christi along the RTA’s regularly scheduled routes.
