PULLMAN, Wash. – The much anticipated WSU Cougar-themed Pullman Transit bus design will be unveiled at a 10 a.m. ceremony Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Cougar Pride statue on the Washington State University campus. The top-to-bottom design on a number of the city’s buses will be seen travelling around town for years to come.
 
“The spirit of WSU has been reawakened and this project shows the tremendous partnership between Pullman and the Cougar community,” said Riley Myklebust, WSU student body president.
 
The design, code-named “Cougar-Sighting,” has been a closely held secret. It came about as a celebration of the successful partnership between the City of Pullman and WSU.
 
The official unveiling will occur the morning of WSU’s homecoming game. The ceremony will include appearances by Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson, WSU President Elson S. Floyd and the WSU Marching Band.
