The longest advertising contract on Manchester Metrolink has come to an end with 3066 losing its long-standing vinyls for the Clean Air Manchester campaign. But its not a return to fleet livery for the tram as those vinyls have been replaced by a new advert for Hits Radio – no stranger to advertising on Metrolink having previously had an advert on 3103.
In fact the new advert for Hits Radio on 3066 is very similar to that previously seen on 3103 with the same psychedelic colour scheme used, albeit with different presenters featuring on the side of the tram.
3066’s advert for Clean Air Manchester had been applied in June 2019 meaning that it has been very nearly three years that the tram have been travelling around the network with its light blue vinyls. That was its first advert so its probably no surprise to realise that this is its second!
Hits Radio previously advertised on 3103 between June and October 2018 and in its previous incarnation as Key 103 the radio station advertised on 3095 from May to October 2017.
