Thank you for your interest in the JCDecaux San Francisco Kiosk activation program.

The Kiosk activation program is a collaboration between the City and County of San Francisco, San Francisco Public Works, and JCDecaux.

The program is managed and run entirely by JCDecaux.

Collectively, the programs goal is to create and build opportunities for local artists and nonprofits through the use of the kiosks.  Applications submitted must meet listed guidelines. 

To submit an application for a kiosk, please review the guidelines and apply HERE

Forms must be completed in full to apply for the Kiosk program. (Form also includes a link to a map of currently available kiosks.) 

Due to the high volume of initial requests, please anticipate some delay in their availability to respond to your application.

We appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication to activating the streets of San Francisco with your craft.

For any questions or concerns, please reach out and contact JCDecaux representatives directly by sending them an email here
