Make the most of your Philly-area ad buy! Get more value for your money from your transit campaigns by running simultaneously with Metro Philadelphia.

Reap the benefits of advertising your school or business in the #1 free daily newspaper in Philadelphia. Metro’s commuting readers are already seeing some of your transit ads sporadically; now you can reach EVERY rider on EVERY regional rail to compliment your transit/outdoor ad buy! Packages are response-driven and offer wide accessibility – reach targeted professionals and students ON THE MOVE!

Metro’s “hybrid media,” the newspaper’s editorial formula and free distribution model, makes it an ideal medium for advertisers looking to reach daily commuters. With no transaction costs to the reader and racks placed in convenient areas for people to pick up on the go, Metro can be consumed in 20 minutes or less, which fits the morning commute.

By using Metro in hand with transit advertising, you can convey more information, drive up response and deliver top of mind awareness. Because people don’t have as much time or attention span as they once did, you want to be sure to reach them in as many places as you can. Metro’s “On The Move” Transit Package offers an ideal solution!
