JCDecaux Group (JCDecaux SA) is a multinational corporation based in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France, is known for its bus-stop advertising systems, billboards, public bicycle rental systems, and street furniture. It is the largest outdoor advertising corporation in the world.

The company was founded in 1964 in Lyon, France by Jean-Claude Decaux. Over the years it has expanded aggressively, partly through acquisitions of smaller advertising companies in several countries. It currently operates in more than 54 countries, 165 airports and has approximately 9940 employees; its advertising reaches 175 million people each day.{ Its headquarters is located in Neuilly-sur-Seine, a suburb of Paris, France.

Bicycle Rental Systems

Its public bicycle rental systems are each financed by a local advertising operator in return for the cities signing over a 10-year licence to exploit city-wide billboards. This is a soft dollar form of transit media. The overall scheme is called Cyclocity by the company, but each city's system is branded under an individual name.

The cities that have implemented its bicycle rental systems are listed below.
