Direct Application Ads

Direct application ads are thin vinyl ads applied to the sides and backs of COLTS' buses. We also offer advertising on the sides of our Shared Ride vans. All contracts and ads must be approved by COLTS. All third party advertisements must include the following disclaimer: “The views and/or opinions expressed by the advertiser are not necessarily those of COLTS.”

Production cost should be confirmed with the provider of your choice; sample production costs through COLTS' local provider are listed below. Advertiser is responsible for cost of application and removal. Application and removal fee per bus will be determined by installer.
