MISC | Advertising on transport

Which cities have subways/metros with no ads in the stations and/or trains?

I know of:

Bilbao
Copenhagen (not quite sure)
Lille
Moscow
Prague
Pyongyang
St Petersburg

In Munich, the newer stations have no ads.

Can you help making the list complete?

Let's say what counts is that there are no ad posters on platform level. Very few LCD screens or small panels may be acceptable.

That's a hard one. Metro stations are high passenger traffic areas. It would be dumb not to have advertising... Are you really sure those metro systems have no advertising whatsoever? Even pyongyang has them, if you are referring to propaganda posters that is. Otherwise, I guess you could add Pyongyang to the list.

Singapore has advertising on cardboard panels in trains, stickers on train windows, seats, flooring, grabpoles, adverts on plasma and lcd displays, posters in stations etc etc.

BTW, there's an initiative in Toronto about removing the ads from TTC stations and trains and replacing them with art: http://www.publicspace.ca/betterway.htm

They say that the lost revenue from the ads would be counterbalanced by increased ridership and tourism! A good idea I think.

Check out Pyongyang subway. No ads in them, unless you include communist party slogans and exhortations. Here's a website about pyongyang metro:

Almost no ads at platform level. Trains are FULL of ads.

You are right. But I believe it's a good thing to have at least the stations uncluttered with ads.

São Paulo had no ads at all until the late 90´s. I guess Brazil´s surface metros like Belo Horizonte and Recife have no ads. Maybe Porto Alegre. Brasília undergound maybe has no ads either

Full Motion Tunnel Advertising

Just wondering if anyone here has seen full motion tunnel advertising in cities around the world. It is my business to promote it and I just want to gauge the general population's knowledge on the topic. If you are not sure what I am talking about, feel free to visit my website at www.sidetrack.ca

I've seen some "moving series of images" on the MTR in Hong Kong...towards Wan Chai or Causeway Bay station, as the train anounces the next stop and which direction doors will open, you'll notice the ad for iCable TV's Discovery Channel that has a horse that looks like Phar Lap.

How I think it works is by placing the images together in a series and as the train moves past it, it works like a flip book thing...you know the one how u draw and the corner of a page and u flick it from behind towards ya...yep.

Oh there was something like that in Lille's subway, although it wasn't an advertising but a piece of art!

They made something like that in Milan a coupple of years ago, in metro tunnels

It was very funny: during the run suddenly a runner appears out of the winow and speed up to "overcome" the train (it was Nike advertissement, the one which most impressed me much)
they used to make this kind of advertisement in tunnel for a while, then, as I said 2 or 3 years ago they ended; probably they didn't have enough customers for the expensive price, or they fronted "logistic" trubble to install advertissement in tunnel and they preferred to stop... really I don't know

It's kinda sad, I liked these motion advertising

However i noticed in a tunnel on Line 3 of Milan subway, between Montenapoleone and Duomo, there is a "strange" long structure: I think it is one of the support for the pics left overthere even if it is not still working

I love this, I find this an extremely creative/innovative and cool form of advertising, working with space that is otherwise useless and lifeless. I have seen this in action in Tokyo on the Ginza subway line (the first subway line built in Japan) around Tameike-Sannou and Akasaka-Mitsuke stations (I think it was between those two, it might have been on the other side of Tameike-Sannou Station though, between it and Tora-no-mon Station).

It is an uncomfirmed source, but I have heard the Toronto Transit Commission had been investigating the feasability of this type of advertising in Toronto's subway system (they are always in very dire need of cash in a country that chronically underfunds them).

that same thing i sow in Budapest some couple years ago (5 or so), but i don't know if it's still there. It was on the M2 (red) between the stations: "Nepstadion" and "Keleti pu."
i liked it also very much.

I also liked it for a number of reasons:
-Unlike TV screens in subway cars it's not intrusive. (You don't have to look out the window if you don't want to, whereas most people tend to look at a TV screen if it's there.)
- The ads are not everywhere - right now people are still excited about this because this is a novelty.
- These ads are on what would otherwise be a blank wall.
