Mobility & Transit

ECONOMY

Traffic and difficulty in moving around the city are an unfortunate part of Los Angeles’s image
and reality. Traffic also presents a significant economic challenge and quality of life impact. As
LA expects to add another 500,000 residents over the next 20 years, it is critical that the city
provides more options for Angelenos to move around and get to where they need to go. We
will focus on public transit, bicycling, walking, and locating Angelenos’ residences near transit and
the places they would want to travel.

Establish bike share with at least

10%

We invest in rail, bus lines, pedestrian/bike safety, and
complete neighborhoods that provide more

mobility options and reduce vehicle miles traveled.

• On average, Angelenos waste 64 hours in traffic each year, making LA the most
traffic-congested major city in the US.
• Currently, only 16% of Angelenos walk, bike, or take public transit on their daily work commute.
• Fewer than half of Angelenos live within one quarter mile of high-quality transit.
