Bus Shelters

Bus shelter panels offer uncluttered showcases for advertising, mounted (usually two per shelter) in glass, backlit frames. They provide 24 hour visibility to vehicular and pedestrian traffic at high-circulation locations, usually along main roadways of metropolitan markets.
Primary Uses
Used to reach metropolitan audiences for both national and local advertisers. Can be purchased and rotated throughout markets or by selective locations to reach specific target groups. Magazine-quality production makes them effective for multiple uses, including point-of-purchase, directional, residential coverage, ethnic, or micro-marketing. Often bought in conjunction with other forms of OOH advertising.
In most major markets throughout the United States
