Message from LADOT General Manager Laura Rubio-Cornejo:

As 2023 comes to a close, it is apt to take a moment to reflect on mobility within the City of Los Angeles.

This was a year of progress as we worked to advance the availability, safety, and accessibility of transportation options. In partnership with Metro, LADOT nearly doubled the network of dedicated bus only lanes in Los Angeles along key corridors of Venice Blvd, La Brea, and Sepulveda. We delivered on efforts to improve equity and access to transportation with the largest Universal Basic Mobility program in the nation by providing transportation subsidies of $150 per month to 1000 Angelenos in low-income communities. We've undertaken the largest investment in school safety in our city's history by reducing speed limits, and installing traffic calming treatments at over 50 schools over summer and expanding that investment to 150 additional schools where treatments will be completed before the end of this school year. DASH and Commuter Express continued their trajectory towards pre-pandemic ridership levels, providing critical transportation services to Angelenos,  And, let's not forget the genuine crisis during the shutdown of I-10 Freeway in Downtown LA. Under the leadership of Mayor Karen Bass, our dedicated team worked alongside other regional agencies such as Metro as well as state and federal partners to reopen the I-10 Freeway in just over a week following the fire. This was a tremendous accomplishment that helped minimize the disruption of a critical transportation artery that serves an estimated 300,000 vehicles daily and is a testament to the dedication of our teams and the resilience of our city. I look forward to sharing details of these accomplishments and more in our upcoming Department annual report.

This message would not be complete without a note of thanks to the staff of LADOT which has provided me with incredible support in my transition to the role of General Manager of one of the largest municipal transportation agencies in the nation. As I look back on the department's accomplishments, I am excited for the future of mobility in Los Angeles. I look forward to working with the incredible LADOT team in delivering transportation services in 2024.

Thank you for your ongoing partnership as we work together to Move Los Angeles Forward and I wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year!
