Transit advertising is advertising placed in or on modes of public transportation or in public transportation areas. Using this method of advertising, ads can be placed anywhere from on the sides of buses, trains and taxis, to inside subway cars, inside bus stations and near train or bus platforms. The main purpose of transit advertising is to reach riders and acquaint them with your brand.
Transit advertising is important because it can provide high visibility for your product on a daily basis. Also, your audience may not necessarily be able to ignore your ads as they would, for example, by fast-forwarding through a television commercial or radio advertisement, or flipping past a magazine ad. Many times, it may be hard for a person to ignore an ad they are sitting across from on a train or bus, simply because it’s in their direct line of view. Also, transit advertising guarantees your small business a varied audience by age and income.
