Get bus advertising and bus stop advertising in over 200 cities with a single bus advertising company. For businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organizations interested in city bus advertising or bus stop advertising, municipal public bus advertising rental space, by a local and national bus advertising agency, is a great way to reach the general public.

Due to the great visibility and low public bus ads costs to advertise on buses, statistics show that posting an ad on bus displays on the outside and inside of city bus lines -- or on bus shelter advertising displays -- produces high impressions at a low CPM. Similarly, double decker bus advertising (i.e., hop on/hop off bus ads) is a great way to increase exposure of an ad campaign using sightseeing tour bus advertisements.

Advertising on bus media with a municipal or city bus wrap advertisement, or a double decker bus advertisement, is available in several formats, all of which are listed on this website. City bus advertisements and ad on bus options are available in almost every market across the United States for organizations interested in advertising with public bus advertising formats such as bus shelter ads. The cost of advertising on a city bus with bus signs -- sometimes misspelled as "advertising on busses" -- and bus wrap cost is greatly reduced when compared to other ad formats, such as television, internet and radio. In fact, many researchers find that the advertising on buses cost for a bus poster (or a bus shelter ad -- sometimes referred to as bus station advertising or bus stand advertising) is the least costly of all researched media formats.

The Rates section, below, will answer the common-asked questions of How much are bus advertising prices and rates? and How much are bus shelter advertising rates?

Use a local and national bus advertising company -- for bus advertisements (including bus wrap ads on city buses and double decker tour buses, such as hop on, hop off bus advertising) and bus shelter ads -- to take advantage of discounted costs for advertising on buses.

Many types of agencies, business and organizations engage in renting bus advertising space - such as bus side advertising or bus shelter advertising - using a public bus billboard to get the word out about their services, programs and products at reduced bus advertising costs. Bus line advertising (e.g., bus stop ad) and double decker bus advertising increases exposure for their products and services at a reduced bus wrap cost. For that reason, companies that engage in advertising on a bus boost their revenue. To see how they use advertising on buses in their marketing plan, check out their bus poster pictures scattered throughout this page and others, such as the transit advertisements page.

Advertising on a bus side or a bus back -- or advertising on a bus stop -- through a vinyl city bus wrap or a sightseeing tour bus wrap is also extremely effective in reaching a captive audience at reduced bus advertising rates. To rent bus advertisement or bus stop advertisement space means to reach car drivers and bus riders -- two groups that are held "captive" in their seats and exposed to the bus display. For this reason, a bus poster -- such as a bus stop ad (i.e., bus station ad) -- excels in communicating a message to a captive audience. Placing ads on buses or ads on bus shelters is a terrific way to reach that target audience.
