Tram Adverts

In order to gain additional revenue, Croydon has followed the continental practice of selling all over advert liveries. Five have so far been applied, all as vynals that can be removed. The contracts on these are now expiring. Whitgift's advert will stay but the others are all being removed over the comming weeks.

There have been rumours of more to come with some suggestions of companies sponsoring new interiors too. Any progress will be reported when information is available.

In addition to the all over adverts, trams without all over liveries have high level side adverts. In early 2001, Low Level adverts were applied for Abbey National. Further adverts of this type may follow.

TDI Media manage the adverts on behalf of TramTrack Croydon Ltd. All the adverts with the exception of 2550 (First Group) have been applied by TDI. First Group's advert was done in house and the result is lots of bubbles and an advert that quite literally blows away in the wind!

All over adverts on Public Transport is something of a controversial subject even with enthusiasts. Personally, I feel it adds interest to the system and adverts such as 2542 (Amey) are very photogenic.
