1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The concept and emergence of transit television for the purpose of this study will be linked to the overall concept of transit advertising in Lagos State. Transit, Advertising refers to the placement of advertorial materials within public transport vehicles and also on their exteriors. The Ads on the exterior of the commercial vehicles which are also called out-transit Ads come in form of king and Queen Signs which are located on the sides of transit vehicles. Another form of our-transit Ad is the tail signs which are located on the rear of transit vehicles. The in-transit Ads are the interior cards which line the tops of the bus windows and other strategic places in the interior of the bus. While the other form of in-transit Ads which is the key item for this study is the installment of LCD screens within the buses to air programmes such as voxpops, sports highlight. Music, ad campaigns etc.

 

All over the world people and companies have been utilizing the use of transit Tv as a great alternative to the traditional medium (TV, Radio and print). Countries like South African conceptualized the BRT-TV and companies like ITAP and transit television network in Ghana have found ways to maximize the use of transit television. This medium gained momentum within the Lagos metropolitan with the introduction of the Lagos Bus rapid transit system (LAGBUS) in 2007 by the then Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola. He initiated it as a megacity project which was aimed at solving the transportation challenges faced by the state’s commuters with over 500 buses and 40 routes in operations.

As a result of the LAGBUS initiative, companies saw it as a revolutionary platform that will allow for efficient interaction with the captive and economically active target market with the public transport commuters audience. So companies like Elev8-mediaEfull media, thery-technology and value media got concession to install and operate the TV screens in the buses and this has given birth to transmit television in Lagos state commercial buses. In 2011 the transit television network was also spread to other newly introduced commercial buses (BRT service) which was being operated by the Nigeria union of road transport service authority (LAMATA). Citing from the (LAMATA) states that the average daily ridership is 180,000 passengers and an average load factor of 800 passengers per bus daily.
