Street Furniture Program

oTIS is responsible for managing the City’s street furniture contract. In December 2014, City Council unanimously passed Bill Number 140897, authorizing the City to enter into a 20 year concession agreement with Intersection, under which the concessionaire will invest over $12 million to replace the existing 300+ transit shelters and install an additional 300 shelters in new locations. The capital investment and maintenance is funded by the revenue generated from a controlled advertisement program. In addition to doubling the bus shelter inventory, the program is looking to introduce new public amenities like benches, art information kiosks, and newspaper condos. All of these amenities will be provided without additional financial support from the taxpayers.
