6 Proximity to shopping decisions
Buses are close to point of sale both in time and space Great opportunity for brands and retailers to drive footfall Vital for driving impulse purchases (confectionery, ice creams, food, drinks, magazines, clothes, shoes…) “I've seen the Gap ads on buses and then gone into a store to have a look at the new range.” Clare ; C1 female aged 34 Source: CBS Road to Enlightenment

7 Great for brand building
The objective of the ‘Get stuffed!’ campaign was to raise awareness of Domino’s brand and the new stuffed crust pizza, driving an increase in sales. Urban T-Sides were the perfect fit to ensure that the campaign covered all the franchisees. ‘Get Stuffed’ worked perfectly in this environment. Research showed that those exposed to the bus ad were 92% more likely to consider ordering a Domino’s pizza. “Bus advertising makes me more aware of the product it's advertising. For instance Abercrombie & Fitch has made an impact on me recently because I see so much of its advertising on buses. It's the same with H&M and Mango.” Female, Social grade B, 25-34 Source: CBS Road to Enlightenment
