Arup/WSCCOG Future of Our Cities Event
June 7, 2017

Technology is transforming how we think about transportation. Autonomous vehicles will imminently impact our cities and how we get around. Coordinating land use and transportation planning together with active mobility has never been more important.

How is technology shaping the future of urban transportation? How can technology affect universal access? How will evolving transportation providers address the needs of seniors and the disabled? How will the autonomous vehicle market respond to the safety needs of pedestrians and cyclists as we seek to meet our Vision Zero goals?

As Measure M implementation begins and new Senate Bill 1 investments are being planned, ensuring universal access is an urgent public policy topic. Join us for a lively discussion with panelists who are leading the way in tackling these challenging issues:

  • Honorable John Mirisch | Councilmember, City of Beverly Hills
  • Seleta Reynolds | General Manager, Los Angeles Department of Transportation
  • Stephanie Ramirez | Associate State Director, AARP, California
  • Will Baumgardner | Principal, Transport & Mobility Leader, Arup

Additional speakers to be announced.

Following the panel discussion, please join us for refreshments at our reception.

This event is sponsored by Arup and cohosted by the Westside Cities Council of Governments.

Announcing West Hollywood Pedals – LA Region’s newest bikeshare launch!
September 1, 2016

This week, the City of West Hollywood officially launched their new bikeshare program – WeHo Pedals – the fourth bikeshare system in the Los Angeles Region. WeHo Pedals has 150 bicycles at 17 stations throughout West Hollywood. Rates range from $7/hr to a yearly pass for $99/year. Until September 6, there is currently a discount yearly pass for $69.

The bikes employ “smart bike” technology, meaning that they can be locked up at designated docks as well as other locations within the service area. The coverage area overlaps with Beverly Hills, so cyclists are able to pick up a bike in WeHo and leave it in Beverly Hills.

Read more about the WeHo Pedals launch at Streetsblog LA, WeHoVille, ABC 7, and KPCC.
