RTA – DuPage County Transit Marketing Campaign Driving Great Results

(November 9, 2015…Pewaukee, WI) The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) in Chicago launched a marketing campaign in January 2014, designed to inform suburban DuPage County residents about how they can better utilize transit for both work and entertainment. The results have been very positive so far with over 815,000 visitors to the campaign landing page and over 2.5 million total page views.

AFFIRM Agency developed the DuPage County Transit Marketing campaign for the RTA and implemented a number of tactics to drive County residents to, which features a trip planner and other valuable information about transit options using Metra and Pace in DuPage County. To drive people to the website, AFFIRM designed and placed signage at DuPage County shopping malls, ran a digital online campaign, placed door hangers targeting homes living on strategic bus routes, placed print advertising in local publications, and posted a schedule of digital and vinyl outdoor advertisements.

“The RTA has really made it easy for DuPage County residents to access information about the best ways to utilize their local transit system,” said Amy Opad, AFFIRM Account Executive. “It’s great to see how successful this campaign has been, because educating County residents about the many different ways that Metra and Pace serve them will hopefully result in less traffic and cleaner air in the County!”
