Wondering where you can put your marketing dollars that will be affordable and effective in reaching the Wausau community?

Wonder no more!  Wausau city buses known as Metro Ride can take your marketing message there! You can reach these families and professionals in their vehicles, from students going to class or tourists finding their way around town!

Transit advertising is a great out of home option because of its low cost and the high impact it makes in each market.  We can tailor a package to fit any size ad budget with multiple options ranging from interior ads (to target riders) to full bus wraps (to target pedestrians and drivers). As you know, the job of a public transit system is to target the highest concentrations of people in a city, your ad goes where the people go! This gives you the opportunity to project your message to the local community. The buses act as mobile billboards (at eye-level) that cover each market many times a day!
