Mayor Villaraigosa is committed to increasing the convenience, reliability, safety and speed of Los Angeles’ transportation system.
New rail and bus routes, stricter enforcement of traffic during rush hour, and state-of-the-art technology to keep streets clear from obstruction have made getting around Los Angeles easier than ever.
“Transit Orientation” arises from policies that promote and coordinate planning and implementation activities to create, preserve, and enhance employment, economic development, affordable and workforce housing, and community services along transit. This process will ensure that all stakeholders share in the benefits of growth and revitalization created by transit investment.
Transit Orientation is built on a foundation of values related to equity, economy, environment, and engagement. The ultimate goal is to provide communities, including people of all incomes and ethnic backgrounds, access to quality transportation, housing, and economic opportunities while ensuring their participation in the community development process.
In early 2012, I directed the City to retain the services of a consulting team to work with key departments to examine City processes that relate to Transit Orientation and to assess the City’s capacity to become more Transit Oriented.
The result of this process is the Transit Corridor Cabinet’s “Workplan” for the first two quarters of 2013. This document outlines the priorities and action items that the City is currently considering to make the most of Los Angeles's growing transit infrastructure. In order to ensure our evolving strategy is the most effective and beneficial to Angelenos, we are depending on hearing from you! Please send any comments, questions, or insights on this plan to mayor.transitcorridors@lacity.
A full list of potential action items that the Departments of the City of Los Angeles have considered thus far can be found here.
A “White Paper” of findings and recommendations by world-renowned Transit Orientation expert Robert Cervero, is available for download here.

Nothing symbolizes Los Angeles more than rush hour gridlock traffic.
But that hasn’t stopped Mayor Villaraigosa from investing in state-of-the-art technology and stricter traffic enforcement to get LA commuters moving again.
Through expansion of Rapid Bus lines, construction of new light rail and busway lines, new direct FlyAway service to LAX, and funding for a Subway to the Sea, Angelenos have more commuting options than ever before.
Mayor Villaraigosa is committed to making LAX a first-class airport and the premier international gateway to the United States.
Increased security measures, new and upgraded terminals and facilities, and a visionary master plan will position LAX as the premier hub of international travel.
Each of us can do our part by taking transit to work at least once a week, carpooling, combining errands, and walking or cycling instead of driving whenever possible. For more information, check out these helpful links:
