POLL: Do you Think the MBTA Should Sell Station Naming Rights?

MBTA officials presented a plan earlier this week that proposed selling naming rights for 11 stations.

While the talk of the Watch City right now may be other subjects, 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 on June 26 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. Officials are still exploring selling naming rights to Commuter Rail stations, which would include Waltham's stop on Moody Street

Check out the full Globe report here.

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.
