CTA Looks Into Naming Rights For Stations

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Dec 1, 2008 5:20PM

In an effort to boost revenue, the CTA may begin selling naming rights for their train stops to corporations. The CTA is currently mum on which stations and which corporations are involved. Now, we're not exactly purists here and if it means there's money to plug that budget hole, fine. Still, giving directions like, "You get on at the Hershey Brown Line Stop, transfer to the Red Line at the Coca-Cola stop, and get off at the AT&T Stop and you're right there at U.S. Cellular Field," sounds kind of silly, but we're sure we'll deal with it. As long as Macy's is no where near the deal.
