While the talk of the Garden City right now may be the naming rights for local public school facilities, Greater Boston is abuzz with the possibility of corporations purchasing names for local MBTA stations.
According to a report in the Boston Globe, MBTA officials unveiled a plan Tuesday that proposed selling the naming rights for 11 T stations, a measure that could bring in a potential $147 million for the cash-strapped transit system.
Although the focus for now is just on downtown stops (including South Station, Park Street, Downtown Crossing and Boylston), the MBTA is looking to spread the naming rights campaign to stations across the transit system, the Globe reported.
Earlier this year, the MBTA passed a fare hike as well as a number of service cuts to help with some of its financial strain. Those changes take effect this Sunday, July 1.
