Advertising on People Mover

Drivers and pedestrians are a captive audience to bus advertising. They can't turn the TV channel, switch the radio station, or turn the newspaper page. It's a dominant exposure that has proven itself again and again with hundreds of satisfied customers. For your next advertising campaign, consider bus advertising.
