Los Angeles Mobility Data Specification, 2018

This is a Los Angeles Mobility Data Specification. It was designed by The City of Los Angeles, led by the LA Department of Transportation (LADOT) and Information Technology Agency (ITA). It is dated 2018. It is a part of the department.

To manage the disruption caused by expanding mobility options—from dock-less scooters to autonomous fleets—Los Angeles developed a new data standard and language. Through an open source public-private collaboration, LA worked with other cities and mobility companies to create the specification. It requires companies to share real-time data, critical information that enables cities to design safer, more responsive streets and actively manage transportation.
