And she says the decision to use buses for advertising carries a subtle secondary message: In a time of high gasoline prices and concert about air quality, Lennar supports public transit.
The benefits for RTC extend beyond the revenue it generates from the advertising, says Erin FitzSimons Krug, marketing specialist for the transportation agency.
