One contract with Texas-based Clear Channel allows the company to install new digital advertising at O’Hare and changes the terms of the company’s Midway advertising contract. A separate measure lets France-based JCDecaux sell ad space on O’Hare transit system cars, which move passengers between airport terminals and parking lots.
