Advertising in Chicago


Overview  |  Coverage  |  Innovate


Within Chicago's city boundaries, JCDecaux Street Furniture networks reach nearly 3 million residents and visitors, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on bus shelters, City Information Panels (CIPs) and newsstand kiosks. All of our Chicago Street Furniture was designed by globally-renowned, award-winning American architect Robert A.M. Stern, who serves as Dean of the Yale School of Architecture.  These beautiful structures provide advertisers with elegant showcases for their messages.

Our Street Furniture delivers over 3,000 backlit advertising panels within the city of Chicago, delivering the best coverage downtown and throughout the neighborhoods. JCDecaux bus shelters also offer advertising opportunities throughout neighborhoods where few, if any, other Out-of-Home options exist.

All JCDecaux advertising panels are 24-hour backlit, increasing the reach of your advertising by 16%*. They are the most impactful advertising spaces for pedestrians and vehicular traffic within the city of Chicago.
