FuturizeX Autonomous Vehicles Panel Discussion


FuturizeX Autonomous Vehicles Panel Discussion

CD4 Councilmember David Ryu, LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds, Director of Transportation Policy for Lyft Emily Castor and Managing Director for Investing in Place Jessica Meany all participated. Los Angeles Times Transportation writer Laura Nelson moderated the discussion on how these vehicles will shape our city and – perhaps more importantly – how our city will shape the rise of this new technology.

The Great Streets team invites you to join us on Saturday, December 3, for a community pop-up event that will provide a hands-on experience of what could come to Lankershim Blvd as part of the Great Streets Initiative.

We’ll be activating the street with art, music, food and family-friendly activities, and giving attendees a chance to try out new ways of using the street, including temporary protected bike lanes and parklets.

The feedback you share at the event will guide the Great Streets Iniative, the Office of Councilmember Paul Krekorian and city departments in shaping a plan for short-term improvements and a long-term vision.

Attendees can also participate in a free raffle with prizes including an Amazon Echo Dot, t-shirts, gift cards, reusable bags, and other items donated by participating partners and merchants.

Hope to see you on the street!
