At The Bus Stop

Pretty soon as you wait for the bus, you might be staring at underwear. Or maybe a lizard selling car insurance. For years Seattle has shied away from allowing more advertising signs in town. But Mayor Mike McGinn last week took a step at allowing ads on things like bus shelters and informational kiosks in downtown and other commercial areas. Spokesman Aaron Pickus, aware of the city's history of uneasiness with being inundated by signs, said on the phone it's an idea the city is just exploring at this point. They issued a request for proposals, which are due Nov. 15. Depending on what those proposals are, they'll get an idea of how much money it would raise. [Photo via the.urbanophile on Flickr]
