Hey all, you may start to notice our ads around the Chicago area on the buses and trains like we've done for the past couple years. See if you can snag some photos and share the ACen love!

And anywho! Gwaaah!! I've seen them yesterday and today, both on the redline! It got me so excited, like it's finally approaching!! I would've taken a picture myself if the cart wasn't so crowded... @~@

At least I know what to look for.

I'll try to take one home: "Hey everyone look over there!!!" -takes sign down and rolls it up- "Nope my mistake" -gets off the next stop into the next cart.

I'll have to keep an eye out for them-- I take a CTA bus (74) on a nearly daily basis. All I've seen thus far are random ads in Spanish for insurance or whatever, but I can always hope I'll finally catch a bus with different ads. :). *crosses fingers and hopes that I see the ads eventually* It'll be the first good ad I've seen since the one for the last Professor Layton game.

Figured as much, since we use the Blue Line to get to Acen. I've seen some ads on the backs of buses. I've seen twice ads on the sides of buses. My sis was dying to get a shot of one.

I saw a bus with an ad on the side around 95th. In the second it took for me to get my phone, it disappeared. ._.

Saw one ad on the Orange Line when I was on my way home from Chinatown. I was too tired to take a pic. Nice to see ads popping in the city.

Haven't been on CTA lately but I've started seeing Acen advertised on the electronic sign on the pedestrian bridge between the convention center and parking garage. Looks nice, even if it is blinding :)
