Clear Channel Outdoor Extends Bus Shelter Contract in Oxford
Clear Channel Outdoor UK has clarified its bus shelter contract in Oxford and is increasing the number of ad panels on bus shelters across the city, including the addition of 45 new sites in the City Centre.
Cllr Jean Fooks, Executive Member for a Cleaner City in Oxford, said: "We are delighted that the number of bus shelters in Oxford is going to increase over the next few years. Oxford leads the country outside London in bus use, so it is really important to have first-class infrastructure for the passengers."
Clear Channel has held the bus shelter contract with Oxford since 1987 and has now confirmed the arrangements which will be in place until 2022.
According to Barry Sayer, Chief Executive of Clear Channel Outdoor UK: "While Oxford is famous world-wide for its University, it is also home to a growing hi-tech community with many businesses located in and around the city. Through our partnership with Oxford City Council we have been able to increase our provision of shelters and ad panels which will improve the infrastructure of the city and the ability of advertisers to reach target audiences."
The new shelters will be of two designs - the Insignia and Landmark shelters from the Clear Channel Choice collection. All the new shelters will be capable of carrying real time technology cases.
