MTA Advertising Policy
Effective October 16, 2007
Advertising on Municipal Transportation Agency ("MTA") property, or as authorized under any contract with the MTA, constitutes a nonpublic forum. No such advertisement shall:
- be false, misleading or deceptive;
- concern a declared political candidate or ballot measure scheduled for consideration by the voters in an upcoming election, or an initiative petition submitted to the San Francisco Department of Elections;
- appear to promote the use of firearms;
- be clearly defamatory;
- be obscene or pornographic;
- advocate imminent lawlessness or violent action;
- promote alcoholic beverages or tobacco products;
- infringe on any copyright, trade or service mark, title or slogan;
In addition, all advertisements on MTA property or as authorized under any MTA contract shall include the following language: “The views expressed in this advertisement do not necessarily reflect the views of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.”
Any pilot programs or experimental advertisements must be submitted and approved by the MTA Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer at least sixty (60) days prior to implementation.
This policy shall be effective upon adoption but shall not be enforced to impair the obligations of any contract in effect at the time of its approval. It shall be incorporated into any new contract for advertising on MTA property including any new contract for advertising on transit shelters effective on or after December 7, 2007.
The MTA Board of Directors reserves the right to amend this policy at any time with written notice to any affected advertising contractor.
MTA contracts granting advertising rights shall include this Policy as an attachment and must require the following:
- The contractor must comply with the advertising standards set forth in this Policy, as they may be amended from time to time.
- The contractor must display only those advertisements that are in compliance with this Policy.
- The contractor must promptly remove any advertisements that are in violation of this policy upon written demand by the MTA Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer, in conformity with state and federal law.
