What is the existing contract?
StreetsLA has an existing long-term franchise agreement with OUTFRONT JC Decaux, LLC (OFMJCD), wherein the City grants OFMJCD the exclusive right to install and maintain street furniture in exchange for the right to operate and display commercial advertising on the City’s behalf. Through this arrangement, the City is able to realize the benefit and use of that furniture including all on-going maintenance at no cost while sharing the revenues generated by the advertising. This program is a successor to the City’s previous Transit Shelter Program, which was initiated in the early 1980s; it has been in effect in one form or another with other service providers for almost 40 years.
What is the term of the current contract?
The City’s contract with OFMJCD was initiated on December 21, 2001 and is set to expire on December 31, 2021. In December of 2021, a 12- month contract extension was executed to facilitate the completion of both the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) analysis and contract negotiations for the Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program aka STAP. The contract extension is set to expired on December 31, 2022.
How many pieces of furniture have been provided through this program?
Since its inception, the program installed, services, and operates:
● 1884 Transit Shelters with litter receptacles
● 197 Public Amenity Kiosks
● 6 Vending Kiosks
● 15 Automated Public Toilets
● Access to 13% of the media panels for City Public Service Programs at no cost to the City.
How often are these amenities serviced?
OFMJCD provides all maintenance for the program furniture including service visits to each piece of furniture (Transit Shelters, Public Amenity Kiosks, and Vending Kiosks) at least twice a week to clean it, remove litter, abate graffiti, and clean sidewalk areas. OFMJCD provides service visits to each of the program’s Automated Public Toilets a minimum of 3 times a day, 365 days a year to ensure they are well maintained and in good working order. In addition, OFMJCD operates a toll-free service request phone system and can respond to emergency requests 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Transit Shelter Enhancement Through Art
StreetsLA provides opportunities to enhance transit shelter aesthetics and further community identity through the display or application of artwork. Artwork displayed on the City’s transit shelters should reflect the people, values, history and cultural characteristics of the surrounding community and/or the City of Los Angeles in general. Artwork proposals are considered on a case-by-case basis.
