What is transit advertising? The definition of transit advertising is advertising displays placed on vehicles that transport commuters in the public way, such as city buses, trains, subways, airplanes and the stations and shelters that serve those vehicles.

Get mass transit ads in over 250 cities with a single national transit advertising agency. Also defined as public or municipal transportation advertising space, transit advertisements are an excellent medium to reach the general public. Transit signs are located inside and outside of city/county and municipal public transportation vehicles/stations and terminals. (In some cities, this ad format is referred to as MTA advertising or Metro advertising.) Because of their great visibility and low transit media rates, renting public transit displays produces impressions at a low CPM.

Public transportation advertisement signs (including, by definition, transit stop ads or transit shelter ads) come in several forms, all of which are listed under the Products section, below. Statistics show that transit advertising costs are low compared to other media.

Businesses excel with this ad format for a simple reason: the use of a local transit advertising company to place ads in multiple cities delivers lots of impressions at a low cost.

The advantages and disadvantages of transit advertising are numerous, but one thing is clear: renting transit media is highly effective in garnering large numbers of gross impressions.
