Bus stop proposal

A Chicago man proposed to girlfriend, now fiance, by placing an ad in a bus shelter at her regular stop on her commute to work. “At first I was afraid it wouldn’t be very romantic—it’s a bus station,” Clark tells the Chicago Tribune. “But I mentioned it to her sister and my cousin, and they were both excited about it. I had two women who liked it, so I went with it.”


Eric Anderson contacted JCDecaux, which manages the city’s bus shelters. The firm typically charges up to $3,000 a month for bus stop ads – a price out of Anderson’s reach. But his request pulled on the heart strings of the JCDecaux account executive.

“I approached my sales director,”  the AE said. “Being a romantic, she said, ‘Let’s go for it!’ ” So the company let Anderson rent the space for one week at a discounted rate, and Wednesday morning, the proposal went up. She said yes, and gets to be proposed to every morning on her commute until the sign comes down.
