New forms of transportation technology are changing the outlook for the future of transportation in cities, especially car-centric Los Angeles, creating uncertainty for land use and transportation planners as they make decisions for the future.
Autonomous vehicles may make it easier to get around and less important to own a car, but conversely may encourage car ownership and sprawl. Transportation Network Companies and transit innovations like the Hyperloop are also changing the way we move. Planners will be crucial in guiding these scenarios and advocating for good patterns of infrastructure investment and development.
LA is one of the few cities thinking proactively about the impact of driverless vehicles and other innovations on urban development. LADOT, Metro, and Mayor Eric Garcetti have all created positions to help guide the City to a better transportation future. Join APA Los Angeles and our panelists to hear how autonomous vehicles, TNCs and transit will impact land use and transportation planning in Los Angeles in the not-too-distant future.
