Cologne bus and tram advertising

Cologne is a vibrant city with a well-structured road and public transport infrastructure network. The main train station is not only the main interchange station, but also an important hub for shopping. As part of regional and commuter rail, Cologne is crossed by 5 lines of the Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn. Two lines of this suburban rail (S13/S19) run from the main train station to the Cologne/Bonn airport 24 hours every day.
Mass transit in the city is handled by the light rail rapid transit system, the Stadtbahn. This light rail train is a mix of tram, as well as underground (U-Bahn) and interurban rail. It runs on 12 lines and is operated both, above ground and below. Two lines connect Cologne to the neighboring city Bonn. In addition to the Stadtbahn, Cologne is served by 62 bus lines with a fleet of 829 buses. Cologne buses connect the city center with the periphery and interconnect stations of different line of the Stadtbahn. Together, the Stadtbahn and buses are organized by the Kölner Verkehrs-Betriebe (KVB), the public transport company, noting 282,3 million passengers every year.

Choosing to place your outdoor advertising in, on and around buses and the Stadtbahn offers many advantages at a glance. For example, they increase the awareness of a brand or help to announce new openings. With approx. 30 to 50 square meters of advertising surface, you can reach the target demographic in the purchasing circle and thus successfully stand out from the regional competition. Buses and trams present a hyper mobile advertising space that can bring your message and brand through the whole city.

If you prefer to address a target group in a certain area of the city, we recommend to position your advertising on digital city light posters or giant billboards in waiting halls of train stations or in bus shelters and tram stops.  These stations present a great alternative to publicize your brand and message to commuters.
