Boston transit to ban alcohol advertisements this summer

Starting on July  1, 2012, all Boston public transportation systems will be banning alcohol-related advertisements from subway cars, trains, and buses. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) said that ad revenue will “drop by about $1.5 million in the first year of the alcohol ad ban.” New York City and Chicago, two other cities with major public transit systems, will still run equipped with alcohol advertisements.

MBTA already bans advertisements for “tobacco, firearms, violence and nudity.”
