[US] BART short story program proving to be a success

BAY AREA - For the past year and a half, BART has actively worked to convert its ridership into a readership with a free in-station short story dispensing system at a handful of stations.

Launched in January 2021, the Short Story Dispenser kiosks have delivered 17,198 short stories to riders at the Richmond, Fruitvale, Balboa Park and Pleasant Hill stations, according to BART officials.

The stories are written to be read within one, three or five minutes and are printed by the no-touch kiosks on recyclable paper, BART officials said in a news release Monday.

"What pushed us to really move this project forward is that the Bay Area has such a wealth of bookstores, readers and writers," said BART Art Program Manager Jennifer Easton.

San Francisco's transit system hopes short stories printed on receipts for riders will benefit both commuters and creative writers.

Do you ever get to the train station and realize you forgot to bring something to read? Yes, we all have our phones, but many of us still like to go old school and read something printed.

Well, there's a kiosk for that. In the San Francisco Bay Area, at least.

Reynolds demonstrated how to use the Short Story Cube at Dutton/Brady Junior High and High School in Dutton on May 24.

For the first time since the pandemic started, author Jason Reynolds took to the road for his first in-person tour in his role as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a program of the Library of Congress and Every Child a Reader.
Reynolds has held the position since 2020, and he headed to Montana last month to restart his in-person school visits. The tour, under Reynolds’s Grab the Mic: Tell Your Story platform, was in collaboration with digital publisher Short Edition to provide Short Story Cubes, devices that allow students to create, edit, and print stories of their own making. We’ve gathered a selection of photos from the events.

Underground, at the Broad Street Line’s Tasker-Morris station in South Philadelphia, there’s now a mini-library. Riders, by placing their hand over touchless buttons, can now get free short stories, printed on store receipt-like paper. Many of the tales were written by local students.

The kiosks, which are also at the BSL’s Erie station, are part of a campaign unveiled Wednesday to engage kids and families taking SEPTA — and, ultimately, to boost literacy levels among the city’s children.

Many of us have whiled away the minutes on a bus or a train with a book. Now the Bay Area Rapid Transit District, the public transportation authority of San Francisco, is looking to attract riders back to public transportation by distributing short stories at select stations.

In unassuming corners of metro and train stations in cities all over the world, beyond the ticket machines and behind the throngs of people, there are vending machines that spit out stories. Even though I’ve apparently walked past one of the short story dispensers installed in four Bay Area Rapid Transit stations several times, I never knew they existed – until last week.

Rapid transit riders with a literary bent in San Francisco can compete for a $200 honorarium and the chance to have their stories dispensed in the system's kiosks, according to a press release.
The Bay Area Rapid Transit, which offers riders short stories dispensed from dispensers at certain transit stations, has called for entries for its first short story fiction contest, called "BART Lines," in celebration of the transit system's 50th anniversary.

In an attempt to regain attention after a pandemic ridership drop, BART is willing to try anything — including commissioning new literary works.

The transit agency has started soliciting entries for a short fiction contest, the finalists of which will be available via story dispensers on BART platforms to be printed and read during a train ride home.

“(People) don’t think about BART and art. We’re trying to change that,” said BART Chief Communications Officer Alicia Trost. “So many transit systems across the world have beautiful art, and we’re trying to find ways we can afford right now to bring art in the stations.

Cub’Edito c’est une boîte à histoires créée par le dispositif Short Edition, l’éditeur propulseur de littérature courte. Le principe est simple, les élèves rédigent des histoires courtes corrigées par les enseignants sur une plateforme numérique. Les histoires sont ensuite envoyées dans le Cub’Edito sur lequel se trouve 2 boutons qui permettent d’imprimer les créations. "L’élève se retrouve en position d’auteur, il n’écrit pas pour une note mais pour que ses camarades lisent sa création et le professeur prend la place d’éditeur", explique Christophe Sibieude, co-fondateur de Short Edition. "Pour faire lire, faire écrire peut être une superbe porte d’entrée", ajoute-t-il.
