If you would like to advertise your organisation or event on Council bus shelters, see the information below.

Advertising types

Intersection and road display advertising

Bus shelter advertising

We have two types of bus shelter advertising in the Redlands:

  • standard shelters (for non-illuminated advertising)
  • premium shelters (for illuminated advertising).

Standard shelters 

This option caters for non-illuminated advertising (on either aluminium or corflute panels) and is managed by Redland City Council.

Standard shelters are distributed across the entire bus stop network on main roads and the local road network. This enables us to offer an affordable alternative for local businesses who would like to advertise in the area.

Premium shelters

This option caters for illuminated advertising and is managed solely by Ooh Media.

Premium shelters are located on main roads and/or high traffic locations around the city.

Contact Ooh Media on (07) 3620 2900.

Bus shelter panel types

Council shelters have panels that face both approaching (lead) and departing (trail) directions.

Lead panels usually have better visibility to approaching traffic.

Full lead panel bus advertising

Trail panels can also have great visibility to vehicular traffic, pedestrian traffic and public transport patrons.

Pricing is set by Council in the Fees and charges charter each year.

The booking process

To book or enquire about ad space with Council:

  1. First complete the Bus Shelter Advertising Booking Form [PDF, 70KB]. Note that, in completing this form, you accept Council's terms and conditions for the provision of ad space. And, if you subsequently book sites with us, this serves as your contract with us for the life of your booking.
  2. We then contact you - depending what you have identified - to offer ad space that meets your requirements.  The form lets you identify specific sites or general areas that interest you. There is a maximum of 15 sites per advertiser.
  3. After confirming your sites, Council needs to view the proof of the advertising before going to print to make sure it aligns with Councils policies.
  4. You also receive your first invoice at this time, which includes your panel maintenance fee and the pro-rata fee for your first quarter. Your pro-rata fee is calculated from the date your panel is ready for installation.

You can cancel your booking at any time by providing one month's notice along with completing the cancellation form.

See our terms and conditions (on the booking form) for more information.
