Langley will be on display along the I-5 corridor between Whidbey Island and Seattle thanks to an approved agreement with Whidbey-Seatac Shuttle.
The city council approved a $7,400 contract for advertising on one of its shuttles in 2016, plus another $7,157 for the creation and installation of the wrap to be placed on the shuttle.
“We’re kind of the first city doing this on Whidbey,” Mayor Fred McCarthy said.
The wrap will cover the back half of the 24-passenger shuttle. Advertising past the initial three months will cost $645 per month for a contract between 12 and 17 months, $600/month for 18 to 23 months and $565/month for 24 months and beyond.
The wrap graphic, a flexible perforated vinyl, will be made by Rosenkranz Productions in Greenbank. The design work, according to the estimate provided to the city by the company, will cost $3,600. The printing and installation of the wrap will cost an additional $3,557.
“It’s something that can get in full swing pretty quickly,” interim planning director Jack Lynch said.
