CBS Outdoor, a business segment of the CBS Corporation, is one of the largest lessors of advertising space on out-of-home advertising structures and sites across the United States, Canada and Latin America.
Our portfolio primarily consists of billboard displays, which are predominantly located in densely populated major metropolitan areas and along high-traffic expressways and major commuting routes. In addition, we have a number of exclusive multiyear contracts that allow us to operate advertising displays in municipal transit systems where our customers are able to reach millions of commuters on a daily basis. We have displays in all of the 25 largest markets in the United States and over 180 markets in the United States, Canada and Latin America, including in some of the most heavily trafficked locations, such as the Bay Bridge in San Francisco, Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles and Grand Central Station and Times Square in New York City. We believe that the location of many of our displays is a strategic advantage relative to other forms of advertising. As of September 30, 2013, we had approximately 329,100 displays in the United States and approximately 26,100 displays across Canada and Latin America.
We create opportunities for advertisers by utilizing innovative media solutions that transcend time and space, extending beyond our outsized footprint of billboards and transit displays. Digital and mobile elements are rewiring how we think about out of home, and an evolution in the way campaigns are measured, bought and tracked is rewriting the ease with which out of home is placed.
