Transportation Planning

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation sets and achieves long-term goals for the City’s transportation needs. 

Transportation planners at LADOT work with the Department of City Planning to develop traffic projections for the City of Los Angeles. To forecast these projections, the two departments identify what conditions will affect traffic in the future and how traffic amounts and patterns will change. Those traffic projections are then used to make recommendations that influence the 35 Community Plans administered by the Department of City Planning.
