LADOT Begins One-Year Dockless On-Demand Personal Mobility Program

In the last couple of years, the City of Los Angeles witnessed an explosion of dockless, on-demand mobility products and services. In order to better understand the implications of this technology on the City and its citizens, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) is administering a One-Year Dockless On-Demand Personal Mobility Permit.

Operators interested in participating in the Permit must fill out the application as well as meet requirements related to data collection, insurance, indemnification, and performance deposit provisions. Beginning January 28, 2019, LADOT will begin accepting Permit applications from operators. All applications will be due on or before February 15, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. Applications received after February 15, 2019 will be considered late and not allowed to apply for the Permit. Depending on the amount of applications received, please allow up to 15-20 business days for processing.
