I noticed this a few months ago. But here's a photo of a Capital Bikeshare station with an advertisement on it. This means that DDOT must have awarded the advertising contract. Back in 2013 they reported that
Last month, the District issued a request for bids for advertisers for docking stations — the minimum bid is a $1 million upfront payment for five years, which the city hopes will be implemented in the spring or summer
Wonder how much they got? In the 2014 budget they propose spending $400,000 for new bikeshare stations to get the number of DC stations up to 198.
Also, the second half of Tandem (I guess that would make him Stoker) is making his first blog appearance in over a year.
