There is a transit bus company that advertises businesses *here in town, that brings people to places around town. They have a number on the bus to call to advertise your business on there. A bunch of businesses advertise on these buses. There is like 10 or so buses total that go around town. I think there radius is 20 miles

*this is a pic i found on the internet, some idea here in town*


You can advertise on the sides and on the back of the bus.

I checked on prices a while back, and the sides(1side) are $250 for a month- the ad would be the like the pic below

Also could advertise on the back $125 a month

Would something like this get peoples attention to call if they are looking for lawn service. Or would it be a waste of money

the exposure seems good, but i didnt really know if it would be worth the money.

i was thinking of using a flyer off of here as a ad or the background of the flyer for the ad.

I am probaly going to do the ad once i get the money up

figure... its kinda like having an enclosed trailer that rolls around all day and stops all day at red lights and on the side of the road... if you do it... make your email or website address the biggest part of the ad... no one will remember your phone number... but they will remember a dot com... I would just do the back also.... all those people staring at that thing in traffic... honestly I think its a no brainer... remember, if you wait too long, people will have already signed with someone... you got about 2 months to get those customers locked in and have the most impact with the ad. Good luck... keep us posted

$250 or $125/month seems like a steal to me, although I guess your transit system isn't huge. I would definitely go for it...start with a month and see what happens.

Do they require you to sign a multi-month contract, or can you go with single months?

Also I do wonder how much it would cost to create the sign. I'm sure you could find all this out with a phone call.

How about this for a concept. LOL

Actually you could put this on your own truck's tailgate too and really get some attention
