Great observation. I looked around at the ads on the bus yesterday and there were only "ghetto" PSA ads, even the Public/Wind mobile ads are gone.

HSR cannot get any real revenue from this source

That's difficult to believe. I never met a marketer who couldn't fill every last square inch of space they were offered. There is definitely some failure to lure proper advertising considering I follow my fellow GO train riders onto an HSR bus almost every day, and we're a pretty middle class working bunch.

I hate ads generally speaking, but the presence of normal advertising (like on the GO) does help the already subsidized transit, and is a sign of life and vitality of the transit system.

The posters on the buses now, do paint a demographic picture of a mostly deserted ghetto prison bus.
