There is no better platform to advertise than on the long luxurious buses that are always contending the roads with you. BRT buses shuttles everywhere in Lagos from Lagos mainland to Lagos Island. It is certainly impossible for your targeted audience to miss it, and it’s also a lot of fun to look at especially when the ad designs are large, colorful and innovative.
It is an important and effective tool for reaching audience of all ages, backgrounds and incomes. You are not just addressing consumers with these "moving billboards." You are reaching families and professionals in their vehicles, students shopping or going to schools etc. Top brands such as Samsung, Nokia, Etisalat, MTN, etc. now focus a big part of their advertising campaign on the BRT Buses.
