A Partnership among Transportation Change-makers

Urban Movement Labs is a Partnership among Transportation Change-makers

Committed to a vision where new transportation technologies bring benefit to everyday life, UML links communities, companies, and cities in matching solutions to problems and trying them in real urban conditions, starting with the City of L.A.

One Vision for LA

Urban Movement Labs is a dynamic collaboration between local government and innovators, all committed to the same vision: a Los Angeles where new transportation technologies are tested, proven, and brought to life.

By diversifying how workers, families, and visitors can get around, Los Angeles can meet its central goals — to improve Angelenos’ quality of life, connect communities, expand our leadership in sustainability, and build an economy that works for everyone. Urban Movement Labs is a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership determined to make Los Angeles the Transportation Innovation capital of the world.
