A: It is an opportunity for local businesses to put business advertisements on the side of school buses in local school districts. These full-color ads are available in two sizes: 7' x 1.5' and 6' x 2.5'.

Q: Why are school districts using this program to generate funds?
A.  Most Texas schools are facing several million dollar budget deficits this year that could result in a reduction of staff and in services for our children. School districts partner with Steep Creek Media to sell advertising in a variety of venues. Steep Creek Media projects that ventures could mean more than $1 million annually for local districts.

Ads must be appropriate for a school setting, as well as child sensitive.

Q: What is the sign made of and does it harm the bus?
A: The signs are an automotive application specific vinyl that is coated with a special UV laminate. The signs adhere to the bus like a bumper sticker and are weather and fade resistant.
