Cancer Research UK challenge smokers to check their lungs at bus shelters

A new interactive campaign from Cancer Research UK is encouraging smokers to check their lung capacity at bus shelters across the country.
The bus shelter ad, called the “Breath Test”, carries the copy “Take a deep breath and blow here”, with two arrows pointing to a circle into which passersby are invited to puff.
The outdoor posters invite passersby to blow into a small tube to see how smoking has affected their breathing. The longer they are able to puff into it, the more of the below message is revealed:
“If you are a smoker you might not get much further than this line. However, with help from a Stop Smoking adviser is it much more likely that you will be able to quit for good, so you will have a greater chance of making it all the way down to this point here.”
You can view the video of the campaign in action here.

Clear Channel wins Tower Hamlets Bus Shelter Advertising Contract

Clear Channel UK has been awarded the bus shelter advertising contract for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets following a competitive tender by Tower Hamlets Council. The Out of Home media owner, which currently operates street furniture contracts under its Adshel brand in over 250 local authorities, will sell the advertising space at Tower Hamlets Council-owned bus shelters and will take responsibility for their cleaning and maintenance.
As part of the 15-year contract, Clear Channel will replace and upgrade shelters across the borough. The major upgrade programme includes replacing 99 shelters, installing 30 Adshel Live digital screens at shelters and converting a number of traditional paper bus shelters to scrolling Adshel 6-sheets. All shelters will be fitted with Clear Channel’s Connect Mobile Platform technology, allowing people to access interactive content via their smartphones, including real-time journey information, games, vouchers and videos.
Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, said: “We are very pleased to have agreed this contract with Clear Channel as they embark on replacing all 99 bus shelters across the borough over the coming months. The provision of these shelters has been at nil cost to the council and Clear Channel will provide more modern shelters which will have improved seating and lighting. In fact, a profit share arrangement in place means that some of the income generated by advertising on these bus shelters will be reinvested into or costs for maintaining the public highway.”
Justin Cochrane, CEO, Clear Channel UK said: “We are delighted that Tower Hamlets shared our vision to offer world-class outdoor advertising in the borough. For advertisers, it offers the opportunity to use state-of-the art digital screens and classic Adshel to reach fantastic audiences in one of the most vibrant boroughs in the capital. For local residents and the council it means a major upgrade to the bus shelters that are cleaned and maintained without cost to the tax payer.

Clear Channel UK Launches its First Solar-Powered Advertising Bus Shelter in London

Clear Channel UK has launched its first solar-powered advertising bus shelter on Waterloo Bridge, London using a specially manufactured solar LED lighting kit from Zeta Specialist Lighting.
Four solar panels have been installed onto Transport for London’s (TfL) bus stop, converting sunlight into battery power. They allow Clear Channel to light up the courtesy light and advertising panel when it’s dark using renewable energy.
The solar-powered bus shelter is equipped with an energy management system that knows how much power it has generated. This allows it to automatically dim the lights if power is running low or in daylight.
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director of Surface Transport, said: “As part of the Year of the Bus we are not only celebrating what London’s extensive bus network offers to passengers now, but also what the future may hold. This technology trial demonstrates both innovation and sustainability and I hope it will be the start of something that could spread across our network.”

TfL and Clear Channel Team Up to Trial Interactive London Bus Stop

Transport for London (TfL) has partnered with media and advertising company Clear Channel UK to trial a real-time mapping tool at a Regent Street bus stop.
The new mapping tool – the first of its kind to operate in a UK bus shelter – was developed and funded by Clear Channel to coincide with the Year of the Bus – a celebration of both the heritage of London buses and a look ahead to their future.
Positioned on one of London’s busiest shopping streets at Piccadilly Circus’s bus stop ‘G’, the state-of-the-art digital screen incorporates TfL’s data feed of live departure information to allow passengers to track their bus in real time. Alongside live bus arrival information, the interactive panel offers wider transport network updates from the London Underground and real-time availability of nearby Barclays Cycle Hire bikes and docking points.
The panel also offers local area information including maps and walking routes to tourist attractions, theatres and shops. Over the next two months, customer interaction with the panel will be monitored, by Clear Channel UK, and analysed to enhance the service.
With seventy per cent of Londoners now owning a Smartphone and eighty seven per cent using the internet for maps and directions, there is an increased demand from customers to be able to access the information they need to travel around the capital through digital and social media.

Duracell – Moments of Warmth in Canadian winter

During this winter of ice storms and a polar vortex, moments of warmth are few and far between. Duracell wanted to see if they could change that.
They set up a heating unit in a bus shelter- the only catch was that you had to join hands and complete a human chain in order to turn on the overhead heater system. Each person on either end of the chain places their hands on the wall of the bus stop to complete the circuit.
