As if 'L' stations didn't have enough billboards and advertisements, now the entire station could have a corporate sponsor. In order to increase revenue, the CTA is currently negotiating with potential clients to buy the naming rights for some train stops.
Armitage – "What better sponsor for a spot known for people-watching and potential hook-ups than Match.com?"
Paulina – "We're not proposing a bar cart for the 'L', but St. Pauli Girl could bring some fun to this Brown Line stop. The CTA could re-christen the stop St. Paulina."
Of course, we couldn't help but come up with a few of our own ideas:
Grand – The Red or Blue Line stop might seem a little sweeter if it were painted in the colors of a Nestlé 100 Grand candy bar wrapper.
Western – The Orange, Pink, and Blue Lines all have stations dedicated to Western Avenue. The hotel chain Best Western can decide which of them is "best."
Foster – After a rush hour commute on the Purple Line, you could probably use a drink. The Australian Foster's Beer could come in handy here.
