The City of Calgary wants to fund street furniture for Calgary Transit users wholly through advertising revenue to be arranged by the successful proponent under this RFP who will also supply, install, maintain and repair the street furniture and various signs at its cost.  The advertising space from which the advertising revenue will be shared by the successful proponent and The City will be on most of the furniture and all the signs.  The location of the furniture and signs may be subject to approvals and may change due to route changes, safety concerns or vandalism.  The successful proponent will be expected to respond to these changes at no cost to The City. 
There are three (3) schedules:

  1. Benches
  2. Bus Shelters; and
  3. Signs (Billboards – vehicular and pedestrian-scaled)
