Develop a Following

Bus advertising can generate serious buzz about your company. The most effective ads are those that people can not ignore. By purchasing space on a bus, your ad travels all over Pinellas County and demands to be read.

We'll Do All the Work

PSTA’s sales staff can coordinate your program every step of the way. From artwork to printing to installation, we can handle as many aspects as needed. We will work to get your message on the road quickly so you get immediate exposure.

Make an Impact!

Greater reach and frequency

Reach more of the market, and with more frequency.

The Right Place at the Right Time

Your ads are seen at the best possible time-when people are out of the house or office and ready to respond.

Reach people all day, every day

Your ads are seen non-stop by people around the clock, seven days per week.

Super Value

Transit Advertising costs less than television, radio, newspaper or billboards.

Captive Audience

Your exterior bus ads are seen by motorists behind and beside the bus, often in stopped traffic. Pedestrians notice your ads too!

Brand Recognition

Bus ads stimulate immediate recognition of who you are, what you have to offer and where to find you. The larger-than-life impact makes your business appear larger than life, too, and builds exceptional recall when people are seeking your product or service. Bus ads also complement and reinforce your overall advertising program.
