Jacksonville bus stop plastered with positive notes


News | WFOX


With every stop and every passenger who gets on and off with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority -- there's a discussion about the display at a Southside bus stop.

“I wish I had the time to sit here and read them all. Very nice. I like it. Makes me happy,” rider Joe Spengeman said.

Tiffany Taylor, manager at Tan and Glam, first noticed the sticky notes Monday morning.

“It definitely made me smile. There were a bunch of other people there looking at it as well. Way to pass on that encouragement,” she said.

The messages vary. Some are longer. Some simply say stuff like -- laugh. No matter the length, one thing is for sure. They're much needed in a world that's filled with bad news and tragedy.

“It is absolutely gorgeous and everywhere you go, something like this should happen,” rider Pete Davis said.

The focal point of the wall is a unicorn. It’s completely made of paper and gives a little hint of who may be behind it. There's even a signature.

Taylor said she hopes it's here to stay and people can learn from it.

“To see something that was positive. It really warmed my heart. It brought a smile to my face."

No one knows who’s behind the display, but local business owners are asking whoever is to speak up.

JTA wrote on Action News Jax's Facebook page about the Post-It notes on Wednesday: "Although it is considered graffiti and littering, we will leave them up for a couple of days in order to give the community a chance to read them. We will monitor the stop and ask customers and others that see a note on the ground to pick it up so the stop stays clean."
