Unleash the power of outdoor advertising with trains, buses, and digital OOH media
Welcome to the Windy City, where the pulse of Chicago beats as strong as the roar of the crowd at Wrigley Field. Intersection is here to help you make waves in this iconic city.
As the exclusive advertising partner of the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and Amtrak at Chicago Union Station, we’ve got the inside track to connect your brand with the heart and soul of Chicago. But that’s not all—our digital out-of-home network (the largest DOOH network in the city) is like the secret ingredient in your favorite deep-dish pizza, adding an extra layer of sizzle to your campaigns. So, let’s dive in and see how we can skyrocket your brand’s visibility!
Our Chicago media garners over 2.5 billion impressions per month, inclusive of all bus, rail, digital and airport media. With trains and buses crisscrossing Chicago’s 77 vibrant neighborhoods, we connect you with unique audiences – from sports enthusiasts to savvy urban professionals to a melting pot of cultural diversity. Whether you want your brand to make a statement on the streets, or to create an immersive experience for riders, our transit advertising options have got you covered.
Hop on board the CTA train or bus, and get ready to make a statement in Chicago’s bustling transit system. CTA advertising allows your brand to directly impact the lives of Chicagoans daily.
Intersection transit advertising solutions
The CTA “L” moves Chicago, with trains and rail lines embedded into communities throughout the entirety of the city. CTA rail advertising offers brands the unique opportunity to reach and engage with consumers at the neighborhood level. By reaching consumers daily at their local “L” station, brands can create a truly hyperlocal experience.
Each of the city’s eight rail lines is targetable with both interior and exterior media. Brands can choose the train line most important to their message, based on audience and location insights. Advertising inside CTA trains is the most effective way to reach Chicagoans in a space where dwell time and frequency is high. Exterior advertising (like train wraps) also has the added benefit of visibility to pedestrians and drivers at street level.
Nothing anchors a neighborhood in Chicago quite like a CTA rail station. CTA stations are the heartbeat of local communities, and offer advertisers the chance to integrate directly into those communities. Advertising at CTA rail stations includes both large scale ownership (station domination) as well as smaller, targeted opportunities (station 2 sheet posters and digital platform screens).
CTA operates seven localized bus garages throughout the city, allowing you to precisely isolate your advertising efforts and connect with your desired audience segments. But it doesn’t stop there. Bus media goes beyond just riders, capturing the attention of pedestrians and drivers as well. Choose from formats like Bus Kings, Bus Queens, Bus Tails, Full Bus Wraps, and Ultra Super Kings to create an unmissable presence that combines the scale of a billboard with the advantage of mobility.
Our dynamic digital network
Chicago’s Streets come alive in the city, and our digital outdoor network takes center stage. Picture your brand displayed proudly on digital screens, illuminating Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Digital screens capture the attention of pedestrians, commuters, and drivers in the Loop, River North, Lincoln Park, and beyond. Our digital displays deliver dynamic, hyper-targeted advertising that adds a burst of energy to the already vibrant streets of Chicago. With over 400 screens across street and transit, the largest digital out of home network in the city, your media will leave a lasting impression.
With dynamic capabilities to serve your audience up-to-date messaging, you can respond to the pulse of the city. Is there a special event happening? A sudden weather shift? Or a spontaneous viral trend taking over? Effortlessly adjust messaging, ensuring it stays relevant, and in sync with the zeitgeist. Our digital inventory is also available programmatically across all major DSPs, giving you the flexibility needed to place your buy, on your terms.
