The Metro brand was launched in March 1999, as a London only free newspaper. It was designed as a concise read for urbanites on the commute, filled with bite-sized news and local information for them to consume whilst on the move.
We now distribute 1.4 million copies across 50 UK urban centres every weekday morning, making us the UK’s third largest newspaper (and world’s biggest free newspaper!) with over 3.3 million daily readers. We engage millions of more urbanites with the same short, stimulating content throughout the day online and via mobile products with our suite of digital apps and mobile optimised website.
Metro is a forward-thinking brand with a mobile first strategy, committed to our consumers who are at the heart of everything we do! Visit our specially created brand hub to learn more about Metro, the urban media brand.
