Connect with London commuters

Our advertising strategy team are part of our ambitious programme to generate £3.4bn in non-fares revenue over the next ten years. The money generated will be invested back into the transport network and help to keep fares down.

We do this by offering businesses the opportunity to connect with a particularly powerful audience: the London commuter.

Millions of passenger journeys take place across our network every day and our media partners can help you reach this audience. Engaging and entertaining opportunities on the Tube, trains, trams and buses, as well as roadside estate, are a real opportunity.

We can help your business do business by positioning your message in front of this influential, demanding, and active audience.

Advertising and sponsorship policy

Our advertising policy is designed to ensure that fair and consistent guidelines are applied to advertisements across our network. We also work to maintain a safe travelling environment for passengers, and a quality outdoor estate for advertisers. The most recent revisions to our policy came into effect in February 2019.
