Bus Advertising Indian cities are rife with many modes of public transport. Out of all the transit mediums, city buses account for the highest share of daily travelers. With a large strata of the society using public buses for transportation, advertisements on/in them can be used to reach out to the masses.

From students, to occasional travellers, to homemakers, tourists and corporate employees, Bus advertising can be aimed to target people locally. A fantastic advertising medium to create brand awareness for new/existing products, bus branding is the preferred choice of advertisement for many FMCG companies, Real estate, vehicle brands, amongst many others.

The biggest advantage that comes with Bus branding is geo targeting. You can only advertise in/on buses which travel to the locations where you want your advertisement to be seen. In metro cities, you have the option of advertising in either AC buses or Non AC buses or on both, thereby allowing you to target upscale audiences and masses both effectively.

Why Bus advertising?

Types of Bus branding/ Bus advertising activities:

Bus advertising can be done on different parts of the bus. These include:
Complete interior bus advertising: In Interior bus branding, your advertisement is displayed on the seatback of driver, seatback of passengers and on specially designed grab handles.

Complete exterior bus advertising: In exterior bus branding, your advertisement will be pasted on the all exposed sides of the bus, i.e. on both sides of the bus and on the back of the bus.

Full bus advertising: Both interior of the bus and the exterior will have your advertisement.

Back Panel advertising: Your ad is only displayed on the back panel of the bus. This is popular in Non- AC buses.

Choosing AC vs Non AC bus advertising: Choosing to advertise in AC or Non AC buses depends totally upon what kind of advertisement display you need, and the audience you are targeting. AC bus service is generally used by working professionals, therefore you can use your ads in an AC bus to target a premium audience. However, if you wish to target the general audience, at large then Non AC bus is good for mass targeting. You can avail bus advertising services for the following cities:
