LA’s New Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program (STAP)

Russ Curry, Ministry of New Media

The City of Los Angeles StreetsLA, Bureau of Street Services has an existing long-term franchise agreement with OUTFRONT JCDecaux, LLC where the City granted it the exclusive right to install and maintain street furniture in exchange for the right to use it to display paid advertising but it comes to an end later this year.

Since its inception, that program installed, serviced, and operated:

  • 1884 Transit Shelters with litter receptacles
  • 197 Public Amenity Kiosks
  • Six Vending Kiosks
  • 15 Automated Public Toilets
  • Access to 13% of the media panels for City Public Service Programs at no cost to the City.

The Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program (STAP) will replace and expand upon the existing program and is expected to follow the traditional business model in which furniture costs are supported by advertising. StreetsLA has initiated a competitive procurement process to identify a qualified and collaborative partner who shares the values of service excellence, sustainability, innovation and accountability.
