Edinburgh Trams - advert liveries

The first advert liveries on Edinburgh Trams were not full all over adverts as seen in some other locations but featured a full height advert on the third and fifth sections of these seven section trams and above window adverts on all other sections. The first internal promotion adverts in this style were applied in December 2016 with the first commercial advertising following in August 2017 as part of a multiple tram contract with C R Smith. February 2023 then saw the first full vinyl wrap advert (on 270 for Breitling) with further examples having followed since. The trams now have a mix of full adverts and partial adverts.

This list is a "work in progress" with some dates missing. If you notice any errors or ommissions please let us know by email.
