Fully animated advertisements might soon catch your eye at Metro stations across the District and the surrounding area.
A national billboard and transit ad company is working to install brand new digital displays at key stations across the city, according to Metro.
“Over the next few weeks, our partner OUTFRONT Media will be replacing some existing, static advertising dioramas in the Metrorail System with new 65″ digital panels,” said Metro representative Morgan Dye.
