Some Chicago alderpersons are hoping the city’s new agreement with JCDecaux for “street furniture,” including shelters at bus stops, will open the door to bring more public bathrooms to Chicago.
Under the new agreement, which began Jan. 1, revenue the city would receive from JCDecaux, the company that installed bus shelters throughout the city and sells advertising on the shelters, could instead go toward the company building and maintaining public bathrooms in the city, according to Ald. Daniel La Spata (1).
