Proposal to place ads on Indianapolis school buses

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (WISH/CNN) – Some Indianapolis school buses could soon feature ads.

It’s part of a pilot program meant to help cash-strapped school districts raise money without raising taxes.

The advertisements would be featured on the side of the school buses.

“Our hands is kind of tied here as far as what we can do. So any little bit that we can manufacture money for the transportation department, I think it’s going to help,” Dir. of Transportation for Beech Grove Schools Wayne Saunders said.

The state Senate approved the pilot program, which is now in the House of Representatives.

If it passes, it goes to the Governor’s desk.
