The Los Angeles Department of Transportation issued an updated transportation strategy on June 14 that seeks to integrate autonomous vehicles and other technologies into its future plans.

The city's updated planning document—dubbed the Urban Mobility in a Digital Age Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP)—tasked Ellis & Associates and its affiliated partners to reposition Los Angeles as an active partner in the development and deployment of electric, shared, and autonomous mobility options.

The city added that its new plan "aims to set the city on a course to manage the streets of the future in 2028." The agency added that while it has built "significant capability and knowledge" in many key transportation areas, it requires specific expertise to collaborate with product companies to design, deploy, and actively manage its Mobility 2.0 system.
