NEW YORK, NY (April 5th, 2023) – Vector Media, the nations’ most expansive transit media platform, has been awarded the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) advertising contract, increasing the company’s portfolio of transit partnerships to include the 5th largest DMA in the country (Source: Nielsen). The addition of Dallas follows Vector’s successful bid to revitalize Los Angeles’ transit infrastructure, solidifying Vector as the fastest-growing and most innovative OOH company in the transit space. The DART contract will include all of DART’s media assets including their bus, light rail, paratransit and station media across its expansive fleet of over 800 transit vehicles. In addition to a full suite of traditional transit media, DART’s advertising platform includes 1,100+ digitized interior screens across their fleet, with plans of adding digital screens throughout Downtown Dallas.
Dallas Rapid Area Transit (DART) covers 700-square miles, servicing the metro area’s 7.75M+ residents, and encompassing 12 surrounding cities in addition to Dallas itself. DART’s advertising network consists of out-of-home media placements across its fleet, including bus advertising in the form of Full Wraps, Ultra Super Kings, Super Kings and Kings, Queens, as well as Headliners, Taillight Displays, Full Backs and interior placements. DART’s 4 light-rail lines can also take multiple forms of outdoor media both exterior and interior, as well as unique large-format advertising opportunities at high profiles stations.
Home to 23 Fortune 500 companies, 5 of which moved to the Dallas area in the last 5 years, and with more than 150 corporate HQs having moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth TX area since 2010, the Dallas Metro area has become the fastest growing DMA in the country, and is expected to overtake Chicago as the third largest DMA (by population) in the coming years.
“We are thrilled to have been entrusted to bring our unique brand of OOH to the Dallas Market through a partnership with DART.” said Marc Borzykowski, CEO, Vector Media. “Dallas has become one of the most exciting and forward thinking cities in the country. DART is a recognized leader in innovation and provides advertisers and riders with unmatched reach throughout the Dallas Metro area and we are excited for all the opportunities we can create together.”
