MTA Goes HGTV

This is the Times Square shuttle – takes you to Grand Central. Not only did they do the outside of the cars, they put decals on the inside.

Wonder what it costs HGTV to do up these subway cars?

That’s cool. Is that damn shuttle still un-air conditioned?

This month, the Monterrey Aquarium has had portions of the Montgomery Street BART/Muni station completely wrapped in these trippy ads so that as you come down the elevator on the Sansome Street entrance, it looks like you’re going underwater and a squid is coming over your head.

@SanFranLefty: Nope – all the cars have air-conditioning now, although if you want a seat you can always get one on a car with broken A/C.

@SanFranLefty: Oh, and the True Blood decor is gone, replaced by a bunch of boring Mastercard ads.

About $ 60-100,000 depending on how many they did, plus whatever the ad space costs.

@Tommmcatt Cannot Be Arsed To Think About Sharon Angle: Of the 3 trains on the S line, they’ve done one. And I think they’ve done it before – I recall one of the trains being done up by … some TV show.

It looks a lot nicer than the wraps on the light rail here. They advertise some condo development in midtown.
