  • About Us


Keep your message moving! Include CityBus in your advertising plan! CityBus provides over 4 million rides each year, making it the 2nd largest public transit system in the state. That’s a lot of miles and a LOT of eyes seeing your message. Consider one or more of the advertising options below.

Interior Cards

These signs, 11”x22” are posted in rails inside of the bus where they make more than 5 million impressions each year, seen by riders of CityBus. This form of advertising is a perfect way to reach Purdue Students, who make up about 70% of CityBus riders. This option is also an excellent way to reach individuals without vehicles, both by choice and by need, as well as senior citizens, youth and people with disabilities. Interior cards can be removed and reused later (must be requested at the time of the advertising agreement).

Pricing includes placement of two cards in each bus (120 cards total). Advertiser must provide design and pay for production of ads. Do not place vital elements within 1.5” of the top and bottom of the sign.

Payment Options

City Bus can arrange flexible payment terms to suit your needs. We also have the ability to accept credit card payments (Visa, Mastercard, Discover).
