Advertising on the Bus

Promote your next event. We’ve got just the space.

Parking & Transportation Services has teamed up with The Artcraft Company to give you the opportunity to design and order BUS posters online!

Posters are placed on the shuttle buses for two-week periods.  Upon placing the ad order, Customers must identify the start date.   All requests must be received no later than the Thursday of the preceding week.

The shuttle route spans the Charles River and Medical Campuses, allowing your advertisement to be seen by Boston University community members who utilize the BUS.  Parking & Transportation Services operates a fleet of 10 buses comprised of both 40’ buses and 60’ articulating buses.  Each 40’ bus can contain a total of 25 ads and 60’ bus can contain a total of 35 ads.  The BUS currently makes 70 round-trips between the Charles River and Medical Campuses during the Weekday Daytime service alone, with 6 buses running during peak demand and 3 buses running during off-peak service periods.

Customers can design their ads from several templates options.  The costs and dimensions of the available posters are specified below and can also be found on the site.
