Streetcar Ads 2007

1989 New Flyer 6460 was wrapped in an ad for United Way from the fall of 1999 until the fall of 2000.  First two pictures were taken by Fred Tang, the first before the rear lights were replaced and the second after.  The rear lights were replaced with LEDs during the rebuild.  The bottom picture was taken by Richard Hooles.

This New Flyer D40-89 6457 looked like a huge cereal box for this  Shredded Wheat ad campaign that lasted from late fall of 1999 until spring of 2000.  Photo by Richard Hooles.

Yellow pages directory has been extensively advertised on TTC buses. This picture of 6358 was taken by Rob Meale in 1998, about a month before the bus was retired, just as the bus was leaving the loop at Islington and Steeles.

In the fall of 1998 6457 was seen around Toronto advertising for CAT footware.  The first picture was taken by Felix Tse on October 23, 1998 and the second by Fred Tang.  This ad ran from the summer of 1998 until the spring of 1999.

This picture of 6312, a 1987 New Flyer D-40HF that has since been retired, was taken by Fred Tang in August of 1998.  The bus was wearing a Bublicious wrap at the time just as it was for most of the summer of 1998.

On April 13, 1998 Felix Tse caught 6317 with this Air France ad.

In the spring of 1998, 6350 was seen advertising the theatrical release of Godzilla.  This photo was taken by Felix Tse on April 13, 1998.

6310 was chosen to advertise for Nike in the winter of 1997.  The first picture was taken by Felix Tse on December 20, 1997 at Finch Station.  I am not sure who the author of the second picture is, so if you are the author please let me know.

This ad for the Bay and Chrome Azzuro cologne graced the sides of 6347 in 1997 and 1998.

The ad for Craven A's summer country concert series ran from the fall  of 1997 until the end of summer of 1998.  It is seen here on 6355, but was also applied on 6330.
