Available in all Lamar Transit Canada markets, kings are the traditional "go-to" display for cost-effective reach, frequency and consistency across all Canadian markets. Kings can be direct application or framed and are posted on curbside and/or driver side. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details.  



For campaigns that demand wide fleet coverage and cost-efficiency. Seventies are also available in all Lamar Transit Canada markets. Seventies can be direct application or framed and are posted on curbside and/or rears. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details.  


Looking to step up from traditional kings and magnify their brand, more and more advertisers are moving to larger format side displays like Super Kings or Kongs with headliners, King Kongs and even Full Sides. In addition to the increased field of view, these displays give your design team a lot more creative space to work with. Note that headliners must accompany a Super King, Kong or king and are not offered as a "stand alone" product. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details and window coverage restrictions.



Full Wraps simply get noticed! For marketers who want visual impact from all directions and to create a buzz on the streets, it’s Full Wraps all the way! Full Wraps make each impression count. Full Wraps are offered in virtually all Lamar markets in Canada. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details and window coverage restrictions.






Super Tails and Full Backs are transit's most "in your face" option. Super Tails make for a great bus back alternative to a bus king campaign. And Full Backs are moving billboards that get your brand above the traffic line. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details and window coverage restrictions.


Victoria and Kelowna BC are among the very few North American markets that employ the iconic Double Decker bus as part of their public transit fleet. These special buses are typically deployed to high traffic long haul routes given their passenger load capabilities. Towering two stories tall these buses offer advertisers some seriously "high" impact marketing! BC Double Decker buses can accommodate Full Wraps, full backs and Super Kings. Contact your Lamar representative to confirm market specific posting details and window coverage restrictions.



Vancouver boasts an extensive commuter rail system that connects most outlying communities with Vancouver's downtown core. The main Metro Vancouver lines consist of the Expo, Millennium and Canada Lines.  These lines serve 46 stations combined, and over 295,000 daily boardings. West Coast Express is an LRT system that connects the Fraser Valley with downtown Vancouver and all points in between.




Sky Train and/or Canada Line Wraps and Strips offer the biggest and boldest option for "system-wide" exposure. Much of the Sky Train system is well above grade. As such, advertisers benefit from vehicle and pedestrian exposure on top of the captive commuter audience in each and every station.



Stand out in front of the crowd! Virtually every Sky Train, Canada Line and West Coast Express Station can accommodate traditional station/platform posters. With the option of station-specific posting station posters are the ideal displays for geographically targeting a large captive audience. For something different from traditional station/platform posters, Lamar also offers backlit station posters which are free standing units displaying three scrolling faces and are typically situated in more exclusive areas of the stations. Either option offer advertisers cost-effective exposure to Metro Vancouver's over 295,000 daily commuters. Contact your Lamar representative for poster sizes and station availability.



They say when it comes to outdoor advertising "bigger is better". At Lamar, we believe the same can be said for indoor advertising too! And with station wall murals and floor graphics you can't much bigger! Our wall and floor positions are located in key high traffic downtown stations offering advertisers an opportunity for big impact on a big audience. And for the ultimate in branding impact, ask your Lamar representative about a Station Domination where no matter where commuters look...there you are! Contact your Lamar representative for wall and floor sizes, locations and availability.


Seabus is Metro Vancouver's only public passenger water ferry and part of Vancouver's public transit system. Seabus connects Vancouver's affluent North Shore communities to Vancouver's downtown and all other public transit systems. Average monthly ridership exceeds 500,000 boardings with numbers even higher during the busy summer tourist season.



Exactly the same size as a bus king Seabus kings are prominently posted overhead and directly in front Seabus passengers in the holding/boarding areas. Seabus kings offer unsurpassed dwell times and exposure to a captive audience.



With Seabus Turnstile wraps every passenger comes in contact with your brand. Unique and "out-of-the-box" turnstiles wraps are sure to turn some heads!



Strategically positioned inside the Seabus holding/boarding area, Seabus floor graphics are the ideal extension of turnstile wraps and passengers' interaction with your brand.



Transit riders make purchase decisions everyday on their way to and from work, recreation and shopping!
