TMS Perception Study

For APG|SGA Transport Advertising, qualitative data on the attention behavior of advertising spaces in buses was collected using a new measurement method. In spring 2020, a multi-stage pilot study was conducted using eye-tracking to analyse passengers' gaze patterns during bus journeys in public transport vehicles of Luzern. In addition, follow-up surveys on perception were conducted.   
The original hypothesis was clearly confirmed. Public transport interior spaces in general, but especially the TrafficMediaScreens, attract a lot of attention and offer a unique environment for effective out-of-home campaigns. This was the result of the qualitative study conducted by the HEG Haute école de gestion Arc Neuchâtel. The use of the smartphone also stimulates the advertising effect. Therefore, TrafficMediaScreens are ideally suited in combination with mobile campaigns from aymo MobileTargeting.


Most important results

  • TMS screens were observed by the entire random sample (n=17)

  • TMS screens received significantly more attention than smartphones, accounting for 54% of the measured contact time
