MBTA strikes deal to sell subway signs as décor

The Massachusetts Bay Area Transportation Authority (MBTA) signed an agreement with Underground Signs, which manufactures and sells New York City Subway station signs as decor for the home and office as well as corporate events, to manufacture and sell Boston subway and T-station signs

Signs for all 270 MBTA stations will be available for sale immediately. Signs will use the same look, design and fonts found in subway stations in Boston and the suburbs, with MBTA receiving a percentage of the sales.

Underground Signs are used as gifts for homes and offices and also hung at parties, conventions and corporate events.
