Taxi and Public Transportation Digital Signage Advertising

Taxi and Public Transportation Digital Signage Advertising

Generate ad revenue while you entertain and inform passengers using taxi signage as mobile advertising screens.

Taxi advertising signs are becoming more popular as mobile internet technologies become more mature. In-vehicle advertising has really taken off due to the broad availability of 4G, and now 5G wireless data. It’s never been easier to reach taxi cab riders using high-quality video content.

The taxi advertising challenge

Ad agencies increasingly rely on taxi advertising screens to reach a captive audience. Taxi operators see mobile touch screens as a means to increase revenues and improve the passenger experience in public transportation.

Android tablets are an ideal platform for this type of application. Commercial-grade tablets are rugged and versatile so they are the perfect hardware solution for in-vehicle use. With taxi advertising screens, passengers are kept entertained. In-vehicle screens can display real-time content and geo-located advertising messaging based on the vehicle’s location.

The QL solution

Minimize travel time while promoting local events and businesses using in taxi signage. Install QL Player on small interactive tablets, or on mobile devices connected to taxi top LED displays.

QL makes it easy to entertain passengers. For example, a cab headed to the airport can display flight departure and live traffic information. In-vehicle screens can also show the latest news during the day and switch to local events in the evening. Advertisers can rely on QL to generate ad impressions and audience reporting.

Tablets manufactured for in-vehicle use can use dual power sources. These devices have their own built-in batteries. However, you can also connect them to the vehicle’ battery so the screen stays on even with the engine turned off.

Taxi signage advertising is a great way to reach your target audience with the right message when they are most likely to be receptive to it. This is especially true because of the increased mobility that both taxi and public transportation offer. You can now deliver your messages anywhere at any time, which means you can get in front of customers who would never see them otherwise!

Taxi advertising and public transportation digital signs have enormous benefits for advertisers because passengers spend more time looking at their screens than reading newspapers or magazines once they enter a vehicle. A study showed that taxi signage was the most noticeable digital signage, beating many popular alternatives by a long shot! The best part is that these ads aren’t limited just to taxis—they’re also found on buses, trains, and even ferries depending on where they’re located around the world!
