STA Rider Alert...!

Just the fact that we have a city council member who would want to take away bus riders' seating and another person's advertising income stream makes me want to say something really clever, but I haven't had enough coffee yet.

I don't live there. I don't see anything wrong with the bench really. Someone had a great way to advertise and its been working for how many years? And now someone got a bug in their britches and wants to mandate where and when you can advertise. It's ridiculous.
