Ads on Faregates Discussion

The faregates at Ashmont are now covered in ads for Android phones. Strangely, they did both sides of the gates, even though the ones here are effectively entrance-only.

Not blue MetroPCS ads, are they? Like the ones covering the E Line lately?

They're pretty much everywhere... literally...

Even Bowdoin has them. I mean, come on... Bowdoin?! If Bowdoin has them, then everywhere does.

Central Square southbound side - MetroPCS
Kendall southbound - MetroPCS
Kendall northbound - Zipcar
JFK/UMass - MetroPCS
South Station gates facing walkway to BOS - Zipcar

Those were the ones I saw at least. I didn't notice if Porter had any.

It might have been MetroPCS. They do have Android phones.
