Grammar Bust: Select Bus Service Ad Campaign

Posted October 25, 2010 at 6:33 am

Select Bus Service along the M15 route has been the talk of the town since its official roll-out two weeks ago.  New procedures, fresh bus lanes, and an army of pay-before-you-board sidewalk machines promise a quicker commute. Nevertheless, there remains some skepticism amidst this initial learning curve.  Hence, the influx of vested MTA helpers at […]

M15 Machinery on Allen Street

Last modified September 29, 2010 at 8:00 am

The steel-and-glass army of M15 machines is advancing ever-southward along First Avenue. Two weeks after EV Grieve first spotted the MetroCard units at the Second Street stop, a fresh platoon of support troops is now in place just below East Houston in the southbound lane. So far, the sidewalk-hogging machinery is out of service, but […]

For those about to sell out, we salute you.  So to speak.  This John Varvatos advert at West Houston and Greene assembles the rockstar spokespeople from past campaigns into a Sgt. Pepper-type arrangement.

New Cemusa Bus Shelter for Grand Street Stop

Posted September 13, 2010 at 6:12 am

Cemusa is on the offensive again, this time picking off an old bus shelter on the M15 route and replacing it with the new antiseptic glass.  Within the last few days, a fresh pill box was constructed in close proximity to the northbound Grand Street stop.

New Cemusa Bus Shelter for East Houston M15 Stop

Posted June 18, 2010 at 6:13 am

Another old school bus shelter holdout along the M15 route has succumbed to Cemusa glass.  A new structure was assembled last week at the East Houston stop, but is still pretty bare-bones.  Proper bus stop signage is not yet in place, but of course the ads are.

Varvatos Feeds Off Billy Gibbons

Last modified September 2, 2009 at 8:03 am

Like a pestilent parasite, John Varvatos continues to feed off the rock-n-roll aesthetic to peddle its highly overpriced product. Perry Farrell, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, and Franz Ferdinand all succumbed to the haute couture. Next up, the bearded Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. This particular advert was spotted in the Cemusa bus shelter at the […]

Cemusa Rights Itself

The power of the blogosphere, indeed! In less than a week, the Spanish-owned agency replaced the Delancey Street bus sign. But we’re still waiting for that apology. Related Reading:Cemusa Bus Shelter Coverage [BoweryBoogie]

Cemusa Got the Memo, Methinks

Posted December 19, 2008 at 10:25 am

Walking home late last night, I noticed the erroneous Delancey bus stop sign was no longer in its housing. And as of this morning, still blank. A coincidence? I think not. Now, on behalf of the entire community, I demand a sincere apology! Related Reading:Cemusa Busted (Again) [BoweryBoogie]

Cemusa Busted (Again)

Last modified July 14, 2009 at 1:47 am

The folks at Cemusa need a lesson in our beloved city streets. Their inaccurately-labeled bus shelters are angering denizens left and right. First they mistakenly referred to the Bowery as a “street” [link], and then casually disregarded the last “s” in Frederick Douglass [link]. It’s enough already. In a further sign of disrespect, the Spanish-based […]
