Advertise on HIRTA Buses


Reaching your Audience: Customers don’t have to read a particular publication or tune in at certain time to hear your message.  Advertising on Public Transit vehicles brings your message to the entire county, and some of the busiest  areas — You can't ignore or turn it off.

Timing:  Consumers see bus advertising at the best possible time – when they are not at work, home or school.  Transit ads reach people when they're most ready to respond or make a purchase, such as when they're traveling or shopping.


Value: Transit advertising typically costs less than television, radio, billboards and newspapers. You will reach the largest audience typically for the least cost.


Constant Exposure: Your ad will be seen 10+ hours a day and you'll reach a captive audience of motorists and pedestrians in passing, at stops, or paused in traffic.


Get Noticed: With their bold text and larger-than-life graphics, transit ads are naturally appropriate to support your product.
