1.) Mobility Plan 2035 contains goals, policies, and programs that establish a vision for a balanced transportation system, accommodating all users and modes of travel.
2.) As a chapter in Mobility Plan 2035, the Complete Streets Manual provides technical design guidelines for engineers/planners/urban designers for creating safer, multi-modal streets.
3.) As a chapter in Mobility Plan 2035, the Mobility Map Atlas provides a collection of maps that highlight Los Angeles’ transportation landscape today and proposes where it’s headed in the future. More specifically, the Atlas contains maps that prioritize streets networks for specific transportation modes and reclassifies arterial roads according to new citywide street standards.
