Our core vision is to create a “one-stop” member-driven organization to focus on the way people move around DTLA. To accomplish this, our core vision is to create programs and services targeted at incentivizing the way people travel in modes other than driving alone and to test new mobility pilots such as on-demand micro-transit and wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV) service. Our foundational goal is to reduce single-occupant vehicle trips by 15% by 2030.
