Great idea.  We are looking at this possibility and the strict vinyl guidelines that we must follow with Federal Railroad Administration. ^Business Development´╗┐

Capital Metro recently awarded a contract for our new naming rights program, and this idea along with the idea to wrap the vanpools may be evaluated through that vendor.  Thanks!  ^Community Involvement´╗┐

We actually just installed our first ads on trains. The Austin Chronicle logo runs along the bottom of the trains. More to come! Thanks!

That train is still making a red line in your finances, isn't it? Rail costs too much, and does very little, and the thought of you asking for more trains makes me wanna puke.
