Transit Graphics and transit advertising buys are based on the number of buses required to effectively reach all routes that comprise the local transit system. Transit advertising provides value that offers high targeted visibility with a repetitive daily audience. It is cost effective and has a consistent time frame for rate of return. Service levels are either calculated by the total number of routes or the total number of buses within the local fleet. Transit advertising is sold in a multitude of markets through the US and Canada. In order to effectively take advantage of this advertising medium, it is critical to have the most appealing transit graphics for your transit advertising buy.
