Why BUS ADVERTISING?...You Decide!

Transit systems plan their routes to go "where the people are" within heavily populated urban areas. Exterior signs expose every demographic group, all day, every day, for less expense than any other form of major media (Bruskin Russell Research) - about .90 cents CPM. Bus ads stimulate immediate recognition of WHO you are, WHAT you have to offer and WHERE to find you. They make you appear as the predominant source over your competition and build exceptional recall when people need your products or services (Neillson Politz Research).

Hang Your Company Sign...On Main Street!

Driver's side Kings, passenger side Queens, and Rear displays...three alternatives in size or position allow you to target your preferred audience. Tell people WHO you are, WHAT you have to offer and WHERE to find you... All over town!

Or Deliver Your Message with an Illustrated Theme Bus...
...A Mobile Billboard!

Innovations in graphic technology allow you to use the entire surface of a bus for mural graphics and promotional messages. Think creative! You are restricted only by your imagination! We'll recommend an experienced designer and help coordinate your graphic design and production. It's affordable and effective advertising.

Getting Started...With Bus Signs

Determine which size and location (curb, street or rear) you prefer. Determine the number of signs and months required to accomplish your goal.
Consider bold, contrasting colors for your graphics and keep your message simple and easy to read.
We will issue you a contract outlining your buy and help you coordinate print production with a recommended printer.
Transit advertising "space" is billed on the 1st of each month, NET 30 day terms. Printing cost is subject to terms set forth by the printer.

Because we are constantly adding new properties to our portfolio, refer to our list of markets page for details about market locations, sign sizes, number of vehicles and market profile information. Additional information is also available.

Rules of Thumb

Most clients contract a minimum of 10% to 20% of the number of buses in any given market, for a minimum of three months, in order to receive significant exposure. Consider length over strength. Fewer signs for a longer period of time works best! Keep your name and message in public view and build dominance over your competition.
