TorchMedia secures Sydney Light Rail Network media

TorchMedia has won the rights to the external and internal media on Sydney's Light Rail Network.

TorchMedia GM Kirsty Dollisson said the appointments expand on TorchMedia's existing Eastern Seaboard transit offering.

“TorchMedia entered into the Transit arena over three years ago with a clear mandate to develop our mainstream Out-of-Home assets,” Dollisson said.

“The addition of the Sydney Light Rail Network to the TorchMedia portfolio is a logical step and we’re excited by the exposure it will offer advertisers to the hard to reach Inner Western Suburbs.”

In addition, TorchMedia said its external train media formats in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane will be part of the Outdoor Media Association’s 2015 Move Data release for the first time.
