Fairfax County Seeks Public Input About Bus Shelter Advertising
March 18, 2008
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation plans to offer advertising space in certain County bus shelters, and wishes to receive public comments about this plan at a public meeting that will take place on Saturday, April 19, 2008. FCDOT expects the advertising in these bus shelters to generate revenue for transportation. In addition to generating revenue, the advertising vendor will be required to build new bus shelters, which will benefit bus passengers by providing cover from the elements.
Initially, 110 bus stop locations are targeted for this program. (The location of these 110 stops can be found on the FCDOT web site, or by calling the number listed below.) Advertisements will be governed by a similar County policy that regulates advertising on Fairfax Connector buses. The ads will be limited to one panel of the bus shelter, and will meet all County and VDOT safety requirements.
Members of the public, current bus passengers and residents of the neighborhoods served by these bus stops are welcome to attend the meeting:
Saturday, Apr. 19
