Doing business with Santa Barbara MTD

Advertising on buses is a great way to get your message out to a broad audience repeatedly and on a consistent basis. Unlike other kinds of advertising, like TV or direct mail, people cannot just switch the channel or throw it out. The ad is simply in front of them as a part of the environment! From this standpoint, advertising on buses has the advantage of being able to successfully hit a large number of people at a reasonable price. When used in conjunction with other media outlets, advertising on buses is an effective way to reinforce and strengthen your marketing campaign.

MTD utilizes typical governmental solicitation processes such as invitations for bids (IFB), requests for proposals (RFP), and less formal methods for smaller purchases of the materials, supplies, and services necessary to provide public transit service to the South Coast. Vendors interested in contracting with MTD may obtain contact information and details about active solicitations on the Purchasing page.
