Funding Athens Transit: to ad or not to ad?

See the 3rd article down in this week's Flagpole, "How to Get The Bus More Money?," which covers recent discussions between Athens Transit, ACC staff, and the mayor & commission about whether or not to allow banner ads on the side of city buses as a revenue generator for transit services.

Sounds like a lot of money, but it also sounds like a slippery slope of marketing & branding our visible public space. Thoughts on this?
