What Are They?
Tourist Oriented Directional Signs (TODS) are blue signs located on at-grade state and US highways. They provide directional information for tourist-related businesses and services.
Who Can Participate?
The TODS Program caters to a variety of Indiana businesses in the tourism sector. There are over 30 different categories
that comprise eligible business types.
TODS are custom-made, 6-feet wide by 2-feet tall extruded panels with retroreflective blue backgrounds and retroreflective white wording and borders. Customers have four layout options when choosing TODS signage:
* — must be pre-approved by the Indiana Department of Transportation
Monthly Lease Rate
Standard, 6-feet wide by 2-feet tall panels lease at $35.50 per month (per sign, per direction). Seasonal businesses only pay lease during the months they are open to
* minimum months of operation may apply
The actual TODS panel is your physical property. Thus, there is a one-time cost to fabricate and install these panels. TODS panels begin at $325. Full color logos are extra.
Businesses wishing to participate in the TODS Program must meet or exceed a number of general requirements, as determined by state and federal regulations.
