In Pictures: A closer look at 3058’s advert

Last week we brought you news of Manchester Metrolink 3058’s new all over advert for Sainsbury’s and now, with thanks once again to Steve Kemp, we take a closer look at the advert which seems to have a Space Invaders theme…

    Been on this tram last Friday to Bury. It looks horrendous and the vinyl makes it very dark inside.

    Contravision should be banned! Totally unacceptable, shows utter contempt for the travelling public. You wouldn`t drive a car with the windows blanked out 🙁

    • Gareth Prior says:

      Hardly the same though is it? Its not as if the tram drivers have contravision blocking their view and you can’t compare the need for a driver to see where they are going with a passenger looking out the window at the scenery. The sad fact is that contravision adverts bring in much needed revenue and are here to stay whether a few enthusiasts like it or not.

    It seems to be being used as a ‘Hit Tram’! The two times I’ve seen it this week in the city centre, it’s been laden with Inspectors! Presumably because they are not visible through the obscured windows as the doors open! Clever use of it in my opinion.

  4. Clifford Stead says:

    Advertising on trams and buses is a valuable source of income I understand and I have never had an issue with that but covering all the windows does create problems for passengers. Not everyone on board knows the city and needs to see where they are. The original trams had advertising in Manchester at roof level, could such a feature be tried on the M5000 on the lower panels.
