Transit Benches and Shelters

Bus shelter advertisingTransit shelters and benches are structures erected and maintained at official stops for a mass transit district, transportation district or any other public transportation agency to protect their riders from the weather at transit stops.

The rules carried out by the Outdoor Advertising Program apply solely to the placement of outdoor advertising signs visible from a state highway.

Prior to approving any permit for benches or shelters, approval from the local jurisdiction is required to confirm the bench or shelter is legally located.

Permits granted for transit advertising do not grant any authority to:

  • Construct or place a bench or shelter; or
  • Maintain any existing bench or shelter.
