Honestly this is a good idea. I think the preservationists are being a bit extreme on this one. The “billboards” would be the size of a TV. Those stations are in heavily commercial neighborhoods already so adding these ads would in no way harm the “character” of the neighborhood. From the article:

“One of the Park Street Station entrances that would be equipped with a digital panel is directly in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts, Burger King, and Capital One — each of which already has a large sign facing the Common.”

The T will be able to provide the public with train information and also continue to generate additional revenue at no cost to the public. This is a no brainer and the T should be supported for doing this not faught by NIMBYs.
