Agreements are done on a 3, 6 or 12 month basis.

Minimum bids are determined by the estimated daily impressions based on average daily traffic counts in the counties where the vehicles travel and work (based on 20.67 work days a month).

Most VDOT vehicles travel on roads with heavier traffic volumes. 

Revenues go back into the community to fund maintenance on roads and bridges in that area.Sponsorship packages including multiple vehicles can be obtained at a discounted rate.
