FASTLinkDTLA is a nonprofit Transportation Management Organization created to improve travel in Downtown Los Angeles by:
- Providing new microtransit services
- Designing a new on-demand travel app for DTLA
- Educating DTLA travelers about travel options other than personal vehicles — transit, microtransit, vanpools, carsharing, walking and biking to optimize mobility
- Working with employers, developers and event centers
- Providing group rate and low-income discount travel passes.
OUR VISION is to create and promote interconnected, reliable and safe mobility services to meet the travel demands of:
- Over 500,000 weekday commuters and over daily 50,000 tourists
- Rapidly growing populations of workers, residents, students, tourists and cultural/sports audiences, especially in the evenings
- Pedestrians and cyclists
- People requiring additional assistance with mobility choices — seniors, wheelchair-, walker- and stroller-accessible vehicles
OUR MISSION is to:
- Promote and re-brand DTLA as a new mobility innovation center by creating a network of early adopters and travel adventurers
- Increase pedestrian, cyclist and transit ridership activity throughout the region by promoting safe, car-free travel options 24/7 anywhere in DTLA
- Serve currently unmet needs of low-income riders, families, seniors and people needing wheelchair-, walker-, and stroller-accessible vehicles
- Guide those traveling to DTLA with ideal routes to navigate construction and special events
Understanding the DTLA Arts and Fashion Districts were underserved by transit, founding Members, Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic (FAST) and LA Cleantech Incubator (LACI) in partnership with LADOT proposed to create a set of demand-based transit services to better coordinate transit and shared use mobility services within Downtown Los Angeles.
They are working together to implement an on-demand micro-transit service and a set of mobility services to Downtown residents, employers, developers/commercial property owners, visitors and activity centers/venues. The intent is to increase coordination of transit/transportation services and overall system connectivity to improve passenger and public transit use in Downtown. Additionally, the project has an innovation and demonstration component to showcase clean transportation and innovation in the transit and transportation sector specifically clean energy.
