#NextGenMobility: Mobilizing Transportation to Serve Los Angeles
With the recent approval of Measure M, creating mobility opportunities and properly allocating funds is more important than ever.
In 2016, we sponsored the Mobility 21 conference, an annual summit put on by Southern California’s Transportation Advocacy Coalition, which brings together transportation leaders – a lot of them from our back yard, with Metro LA, the Port and Los Angeles World Airports all represented. What’s our take on the future of mobility? Plan it with our younger generations in mind.
For Mobility 21’s 2017 summit, we’ll keep pushing for the next generation – the kids that will, given the right tools, make a dent in LA’s strong car culture, and grow up having as many transportation choices as possible. You can help make this a reality.
In Los Angeles, this is slowly taking place with projects like the Purple Line extension, Regional Connector, and the Metro Bike Share. So many exciting changes are already under way, and we’ll be here advocating for even more. Stay updated on Mobility 21 by regularly checking our blog.
