They speak of individualism and locality, concepts anathema to the Communist doctrine

In one sense, yes. But a totalitarian regime that wants to preserve itself does allow for small acts of rebellion centred around what it sees as insignificant and diffused objects. Of course, bus shelters aren’t insignificant to those who use them and diffusion doesn’t preclude the ability to see the big picture.

Once money becomes the main driving force of a nation-state’s ideology, though, these sorts of things cannot be tolerated. The opportunities for advertising revenue and street furniture contracts can’t be sacrificed.
