New Advertising in the Metro

Have you seen some of the support beams they’ve painted with ads in the metro? This one is from Gallery Place and is an advertisement for M&T Bank. I guess I say more power to metro if they can get money for these ads. The only request I’d have in return is PLEASE MAKE THE YELLOW LINE EXTENSION PERMANENT. Please.

  • Are there any groups/petitions/dedicated websites for permanently extending the yellow line?

  • Is it painted or shrink-wrapped? I would think painted would be a pain. Think about repainting every month for new advertisers as opposed to ripping off the shrink wrap and re-wrapping. Just a thought.

  • Whatever happened to the proposal for the Blue Line diversion to Greenbelt during rush hour?

  • Saw these yesterday evening. Definitely shrink-wrap.

    I prefer these to those bizarre flip-book things in the tunnels.

    ~ Yellow Line Extension
    There are signs up in Petworth explaining Yellow line off-peak service. Though emails to your counsel member expressing support for the yellow line never hurt.

  • Richard, the Yellow Line extension was an 18 month trial, advocated by Jim Graham (Ward 1 Councilmember) It could be revoked at the end of June, though I highly doubt it will happen.

  • When do we get our pillars turned into coffee being poured into Dunkin Donuts cups, ala Logan Airport?

  • How about more ads and lower metro fares??? like most other major metropolitan subway systems… I wouldn’t mind having something to look at, anyway.
