Advertising Opportunities for our Campus Partners

Reach your ideal audience

Transit ads on Campus Bus enable you to efficiently target the student community within and around the IU Bloomington campus, along with certain areas in the City of Bloomington. Interior and exterior transit advertisements offer a cost-effective method to increase brand recognition and promote your services.

About advertising with us

Before you decide if transit advertising is right for you, you need to know that:

  • Advertising opportunities are only available to IU academic and student life units and student organizations.
  • Our buses circulate through various routes, ensuring that wraps are visible across the campus.
  • Service hours are reduced when classes are not in session, typically from mid-August through mid-May.
  • Presently, we exclusively consider requests from IU departments, organizations, programs, schools, and similar entities.
  • Upon approval of your advertisement, anticipate a production and installation timeline of up to 4 weeks for rail signs and up to 6 weeks for wraps.

Be sure to read the university's policy on transit advertising.
