In a statement regarding the formation of the Coalition, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said, “Connected and self-driving cars promise to not only transform how we commute – but how we think about the safety and convenience of all automotive travel. This coalition will ensure that the demands and challenges of this new technology are fully considered as we invest in our infrastructure and plan for L.A.’s transportation future.”
“OmniAir members are encouraged to participate in the RFI to help shape the strategic action plan of the coalition,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director at OmniAir. “This is a great opportunity to help guide their near, mid and long-range objectives and get your name and products in front of some of the largest agencies in the country.”
Coalition members include the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT), County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works (LACDPW), Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), and Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).
