Intersection Wins Exclusive Advertising Contract with Metrolink, Expands Market Footprint in Southern California
Los Angeles, CA – July 31, 2023 – Intersection, the leading experience-driven out-of-home media and technology company, today announced an exclusive partnership with Southern California’s Metrolink, the nation’s third largest rail system. Metrolink rail lines cut through some of Southern California’s most populous residential areas and desirable tourist locations in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, and San Diego counties. The contract commenced on April 1, 2023, and will continue for three years, with one two-year option, for a total of up to five years.
Already the exclusive partner for Los Angeles Metro Rail advertising, the addition of Metrolink greatly increases Intersection’s footprint in Southern California. Metrolink spans 545.6 total service line miles through more than 50 major cities and 100 zip codes. The initial media launch for Metrolink will focus on exterior rail products, including full passenger car wraps, ultra super kings, and rail kongs. With this focus, advertisers can reach not only riders, but also heavy vehicular traffic and pedestrians in key areas.
“Southern California has been a major focus for us in recent years, and we are thrilled to be chosen by Metrolink, ” said Scott Goldsmith, President & COO at Intersection. “We believe Metrolink’s footprint and audience will be extremely valuable to our advertising partners as they look to reach key targets like consumers and tourists.”
“Intersection’s dedication to finding the right advertising partners for Metrolink will present exciting opportunities for revenue generation and customer engagement at key customer touchpoints,” Metrolink Chief Customer Experience Officer Lisa Bahr said. “Our trains are seen by millions of people each day as they traverse Southern California and will provide advertisers with a level of visibility unmatched in the region.”
