Let’s Get Things Rolling in Athens, GA
The Athens, Georgia (Athens-Clarke County) area has a population of just under 200,000 people, but the area packs a cultural punch for a city area its size.
An hour’s drive from Atlanta and home to the University of Georgia, Athens is a college town at heart. The downtown area is situated right across from the University of Georgia campus and it doubles as a traditional “campustown” full of bars, restaurants, boutiques, and college apparel stores.
Athens, GA breaks away from its college-town mentality in many ways. In addition to the usual coffee shops, burrito shacks, and pizza joints that are found around campuses nationwide, Athens has many world-class restaurants with southern flair. Eateries such as Trappeze Pub, The Branded Butcher, and TWO Hugh Acheson establishments (5 & 10 and The National) put Athens on the “foodie” map. This is not a college town full of fried food bars! You can definitely find your “I ate too much because I drank too much” places, but it’s almost easier to find a higher end eatery in Athens.
The home to R.E.M and the B-52’s, Athens still has a vibrant music scene. From the legendary Georgia Theatre to the local acoustic scene at Hendershot’s Coffee, Athens has venues to accommodate just about any musical taste. In June every year, AthFest consumes the city for five days offering up local music and the best of the Georgia art scene.
We are obviously excited about our expansion in the Athens, GA market! One of our main goals when we officially took over the bus advertising program for Athens Transit on July 1st was to bring our level of customer service to current and new clients that our advertisers in other markets have come to expect throughout or 96+ years in the advertising sales business. We realize that clients have many options for their advertising dollars, and they want the biggest bang for the buck along with a simple process of buying advertising space and getting it running. One call with us is all that it takes to get the process of running high-impact bus advertising going. We handle all aspects of design and printing in-house, so you don’t need to go find a design team and printer to get your signs done. We save you time and money in the process. Our in-house design team knows what works and they can offer you the proper guidance in designing your bus ads.
While we can offer traditional bus advertising options like Kings, Queens, and Tails, we have decided to maximize the space on the sides and tails of the buses and offer Super Kings, Super Queens, and Super Tails. Athens Transit currently does not allow the larger wrap options (Full Wraps, Headliners, King Kongs), but our “Super” sized signs offer big impact along with generating frequency and reach at a rate unmatched in the market.
With all of these great things happening in Athens, GA can you afford to not be on the buses? We’d love to help you get your advertising message on the Athens Transit buses, so if you are looking to reach the Athens market with an impactful and fiscally efficient outdoor advertising medium, give us a call!
