Desperate for funds, school districts turn to selling ad space on school buses

The Associate Press (via the Boston Globe) reports:

New Jersey’s cash-strapped public school districts are one step closer to being able to raise money by soliciting school bus advertising.The measure, approved late last month in the Assembly, would allow ads on the outside of buses that districts own or lease.

Districts would set their own ad rates, determine how many ads are sold and their size. But ads for tobacco or alcohol products or ones that push a political agenda would not be allowed.

About half a dozen states, including Colorado, Arizona, Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee and Texas, already allow bus advertising, and a handful more are considering it.
