More Ads at Delaware Bus Stops?

More ads may soon be coming to a bus stop near you.

The state House was scheduled to vote Tuesday on a bill that would allow the Delaware Transit Corporation to advertise on the back panels of bus shelters throughout the state.

While allowing ads on the back of the shelters, the legislation would still prohibit ads within a residential subdivision, except at its entrance, and within 50 feet of a residence.

It also prohibits bus stop ads within 100 feet of any property designated as a historic resource under federal, state or local law, and within 150 feet of areas experiencing continually high incident rates of drug offenses or other crimes.
