- Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program (STAP)
- The City is proposing the replacement of the current Coordinated Street Furniture Program with the Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program (STAP). The STAP would provide shelter, shade, safety, and comfort to the City's transit riders, active transportation users, and pedestrians. The program would support public transit and shared use of the sidewalk; improve access and mobility; and improve transit information and public service delivery. The City anticipates installing approximately 3,583 transit shelters and shade structures, including the replacement of approximately 1,884 existing transit shelters with new transit shelters and providing approximately 1,116 to 1,249 new transit shelters and 450 shade structures at bus stops currently absent such amenities. In addition, the City is proposing changes to Los Angeles Municipal Code Sections 67.01 and 67.02, which would modify the type of advertising structures allowed in the public right-of-way, in order to effectuate portions of the STAP program and potentially authorize the consideration of other projects in the future. These potentially foreseeable projects are estimated to involve the installation of future advertising displays at approximately 500 sidewalk locations between 2022 and 2024, or as many as 167 sites per year (concurrent with the STAP rollout period).
