The agency's board voted unanimously Wednesday to allow bus ads that propose only "a commercial transaction." The decision means that public service messages traditionally bought by such groups as the Salvation Army and the United Way no longer will be allowed.

Opponents of the measure called it a violation of the First Amendment and said they probably will challenge it in court.
