The Los Angeles Transportation Technology Strategy was funded and developed through a one-year fellowship by the Goldhirsh Foundation in partnership with the Mayor's Fund of Los Angeles

Working closely with former Chief Technology Officer Peter Marx and reporting to LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds, the transportation technology strategist was supported by an advisory board representing national expertise on issues ranging from transportation planning, technology, shared mobility. The strategist relied on an extensive literature review, attending conferences and webinars, and hosted interviews of a broad range of national stakeholders and subject matter experts. In addition, an internal city team provided further support as a technical review committee that reviewed the strategy while it was under development. 

Shared mobility services and automated or "self-driving" vehicles will reshape transportation in the region for regions to come.

The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) sought additional capacity to examine the changing trends in transportation technology and its impact on the organization, the services it provides, and the overall mobility marketplace in Los Angeles.
