Lamar Advertising Expands Digital Ads For Denver's Regional Transport, Joins WOO

Lamar Advertising, one of the largest out-of-home advertising companies in the world, has secured a 10-year system advertising program contract with Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD).

RTD operates a mass-transportation system stretching across eight counties, spanning more than 2,300 miles.

The OOH company plans to expand its existing on-vehicle advertising program, improving adoptions on RTD’s network of 260 trains and 1,000 buses. Lamar will install more than 100 55-inch digital display units in RTD bus stations, park-and-rides, train stations and platforms in Denver and the surrounding areas, supplying ads and commuter information.

“Through the ELEVATE platform, we will greatly enhance the commuting experience for RTD’s customers. while at the same time providing advertisers with a unique, engaging new way to connect with the rapidly expanding Denver audience,” said Cliff Moak, assistant GM of Lamar Advertising of Colorado.



RTD customers will see the first digital enhancements at Denver Union Station and Civic Center Station in late 2022.

Lamar has also added its muscle to the World Out of Home Organization (WOO). Lamar operates 352,000+ billboard, transit, airport and interstate logo displays in the U.S. and Canada. It also has the the largest network of large-format digital displays in the U.S., with 3,900 digital units.

WOO said the Lamar alliance will strengthen the organization, given its considerable resources, experience and knowledge. The three largest OOH companies in the U.S. — Lamar, Outfront Media and Clear Channel — are now part of WOO, which represents 135 members in more than 100 countries.

Lamar CO Sean Reilly said: “There's never been a more promising time to be in the out-of-home industry, and we look forward to collaborating with other members of WOO to realize the potential that is before us all."

WOO President Tom Goddard added: “WOO has gone from a Europe-based organization as FEPE International to a truly global entity in just a few years.”
