  • Choose strategic locations. Look for transit routes and stops that are frequented by your target audience. You may also want to consider high-traffic areas and places with good visibility for maximum exposure.

  • Keep your message clear and concise. Transit ads have limited space, so it's important to keep your message short and impactful. Use simple language and a strong call-to-action to encourage people to take action.
