The World: Rome - Clear Channel Outdoor picks up street-furniture deal

Clear Channel Outdoor has won an 11-year street-furniture advertising contract from Rome's municipal transport body, ATAC.

Clear Channel will provide and maintain 600 new bus shelters, which carry more than 1,200 advertising panels, in the Italian capital.

The new contract is in addition to an existing deal between Clear Channel and ATAC. The former already manages 400 bus shelters with 950 advertising panels, and 8,000 bus stops in the city.
