OUTFRONT Media Renews Contract with Miami-Dade Transit
New York, February 2, 2015 – OUTFRONT Media has renewed its contract to provide transit advertising services to Miami-Dade Transit (MDT), the largest public transit system in the state of Florida, as announced today by OUTFRONT Media’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Male.
The contract renewal was approved by the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners and is effective today. The agreement has a five-year initial term that can be extended for up to two additional five-year periods and requires OUTFRONT to make a minimum payment of $17.25 million over the term of the agreement. Combined with its other transit relationships, including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington, DC, OUTFRONT Media is North America's largest transit advertising business.
"We are very excited to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with Miami-Dade County,” said Male. “We are strongly committed to the public transportation business, and are excited that OUTFRONT Media, Miami-Dade Transit and the riding public will continue to reap the benefits of transit advertising and some exciting digital innovations in this growing market.” OUTFRONT Media recently unveiled its new digital platform at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in mid-January that will be deployed in the Miami-Dade Transit system, with testing to begin later this year.
