How much does a bus advertisement cost? A check on the SBS Transit website shows that it costs between $800 to $5500 per month depending on the type of advertisement and the route which the buses ply. There is also a production cost of between $500 to $3900.
In the good old days of SBS, advertisements were simple printed metal panels hammered onto the buses:

Cost? Real cheap compared to plastic stick-on type used nowadays.
