Lamar Advertising Company's bus shelters have a key role in a Highmark marketing push.

The downtown Pittsburgh-based health insurer on Thursday unveiled a North Side bus shelter that has been decked out for the football season. The shelter is located between Heinz Field and Carnegie Science Center and here’s the twist: pictures taken at the shelter may appear on a big digital billboard nearby on Reedsdale Street.

“This integrated consumer experience is a small way to show Highmark’s commitment to the community and the amazing fans who live here,” Marketing Vice President Tony Ryzinski said in a prepared statement.

The cost of the campaign was not released. Also part of the campaign will be a Highmark banner for a light rail car, which serves North Side and will ready for Sunday’s Steelers game at Heinz Field.
