Ann Arbor Chronicle: AATA switches ad companies
The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority has initiated a three-year contract with a new ad agency, dropping its previous advertising company after the end of a seven-year contract.
In its Aug. 16 meeting, the AATA board authorized the new contract with CBS Outdoor Advertising of Lexington, New York, according to a report in the Ann Arbor Chronicle. AATA’s former ad agency, Transit Advertising Group of Farmington Hills, was a former defendant alongside AATA in a lawsuit brought by the ACLU after AATA denied a “Boycott Israel” ad for its buses.
The Transit Advertising Group was dropped as a defendant in the case, but a ruling on the case has not yet been issued.
