School Bus Advertisement Possibilities in Cumberland County
Karli Threet Thursday October 25, 2012

In the next few months, you will probably see advertisements on Cumberland County School busses. Todd Isaacs with District Solutions from Atlanta came before the Board of Education on Thursday evening with a proposal for 16 inch by 60 inch advertisements on our fleet of 61 busses. Any one will be able to purchase an advertisement for any business, other than those with sexual, gambling, alcohol, tobacco or political content. The cost is $125 for 1-3 advertisements per month, and the cost reduces as you buy more advertisements. The client will pay for the sign to be made at a beginning cost of $150 per sign. If all busses have advertisements on them, it will be an extra $50,320 for the BOE to use anywhere they wish as long as it is approved by the board.
