From the floor of Belfast (Lanyon Place - ex Central) Station.

Haemorrhoid treatment - it'll be needed after hours spent sitting on cold benches/the floor waiting for delayed and cancelled trains.

Hopefully something a bit more appropriate than the Oracle in Reading. Comedown one of the escalators and view a floor advert marking the Oracle's 20th anniversary, in front of another shuttered unit.

In my experience you could advertise what you like.  Many people seem to be glued to their phones and wouldn't see it anyway (or anything/anybody else).

Perhaps a more immediately effective version of the current "Beware of the Edge" campaign?

It would be interesting to find out by a random survey of casual travelers how many of them notice or use the zonal platform markings installed in the past year.

Adverts for osteopaths and chiropractors.

I was thinking that there would also be plenty of space for some non-advertising "floor art" but this might be a very bad idea in a busy concourse with the possible flow of people being significantly interrupted. Moreover, a combination of diverted attention and sudden stops sounds like a parade of accidents waiting to happen with the ambulance chasers circling around in the shadows.
