HURON SHORES AREA TRANSIT
As part of Huron Shores Area Transit’s (HSAT) ongoing development and goal of long-term sustainability, it has introduced an Advertising Program to generate supplementary revenue. This initiative will help the transit agency transition to Ontario’s Gas Tax Fund in 2025, ensuring the continued provision of public transit in the region.
The Advertising Program’s first phase offers Headliner Ad Card advertising opportunities. This type of advertising displays above the bus windows, ensuring maximum visibility for all passengers. Future expansion of the program will include transit shelter, bench, and bike rack advertising options. This means even more opportunities for local businesses and organizations to showcase their products and services to local residents and area visitors while supporting public transit.
Headliner Ad Card advertising is considered one of the most cost-effective marketing methods because passengers on public transit can be a captive audience for an extended period, potentially up to an hour and 50 minutes, providing businesses with ample exposure time.
The number of headliner ad spots is limited to 18, nine on each of HSAT’s two buses and Transit Coordinator Susan Mills reports three of those 18 spots are already sold for late summer and early fall.
Mills said, “Any business curious about trying this advertising method should not wait but call and book their spot.”
Pricing is reasonable, with winter months priced at $12.50 per week, spring and fall priced at $18.75 per week, and peak summer months priced at $25 per week.
HSAT’s Advertising Program is part of the agency’s strategy to achieve financial sustainability while providing a valuable platform for businesses to reach a captive audience. Under the Ontario Gas Tax Funding formula, the more revenue HSAT generates through advertising, fares, and donations, the less financial contribution is needed by local municipalities. The current municipal contribution is estimated at $3.52 per person per year (for comparison, Crossing Guards cost $3.21 per capita, and Harbours cost $11.75 per capita). That amount can be lowered by increasing HSAT’s net revenue. The Advertising Program is a win-win solution that benefits the transit agency, businesses looking to promote their products or services, municipal budgets, and local residents.

Cassie Greidanus is the Conservation Education Coordinator with ABCA. She has five years of experience leading night hikes.
She invites you to “explore our nocturnal world, including owls and other nocturnal species of Ontario.” She invites people registered for the event to ” …be prepared to learn all about the nightlife happening when we are normally tucked into bed…” and to ” …discover the adaptations of our owls and the creatures with which they co-exist.”
The Owl Prowl gives people a way to be active in nature, listen for owls, learn about local animals that are active at night, and to show their support for conservation education, according to Greidanus.
“This event is possible thanks to the donations by those taking part,” she said. “That generous support raises money to support conservation education programs for the next year.”

The Owl Prowl rain date is Saturday, Oct. 28.
Owls are incredible creatures of the night. Over the years, hundreds of people have learned about owls and their amazing nocturnal adaptations at the annual Owl Prowl.
The Owl Prowl is possible thanks to the support of ABCF, and its donors and community supporters, and the support of ABCA and its member municipalities.
