Alcohol advertising on public transport

Advertising on public transport is a form of location-based outdoor promotion, alongside bus shelters, benches and kiosks.

Similar to other forms of outdoor alcohol advertising, there is a lack of research specifically looking at the impact of alcohol advertising on public transport.39

That said, the impact of alcohol advertising on public transport is still likely to be important, given that many people may be exposed to this form of alcohol advertising on a regular basis.

There is no reason to believe that the negative impact of exposure to alcohol advertising on buses, bus shelters, trains, etc is any different to other forms of alcohol advertising.
