On Train Advertising

On-train advertising has the longest audience dwell time of any rail ad format, and is unmissable in front of the rail audience, a very desirable one for advertisers. Research proves that on-train posters are highly effective, persuading rail travellers to consider, investigate and purchase brands they've seen advertised.
