The new advertising policy comes after SEPTA was forced to run anti-islam ads following a court ruling.

SEPTA did so on 84 buses, receiving a total of $30,000.

That will likely not happen again because today’s vote will actually solidify a ban on ads that have political, controversial or those that criticize a particular person or a group.

The new policy — which is expected to be approved by SEPTA’s board today — would also require an advertiser to pay legal bills caused by reactions to an advertisement.
