Buses are moving billboards circulating in the busiest areas of the city. Bus advertising offers exposure to local commuters, drivers, and pedestrians. These “moving billboards” are typically displayed on the exterior of the bus and come in a variety of sizes and high-impact formats to reach your audience. Bus ads move throughout residential and core business areas, delivering your message throughout the marketplace all day, every day. Buses go where people go!


EMTA has adopted a Commercial Advertising Policy as of February 2024. All advertisers, agencies and potential clients must be aware for this policy.
