LA pilots on-demand bus drop-offs to better serve women

  • Date: 08/09/2021

Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) is launching a pilot scheme to allow DASH bus riders to request drop-off locations along the route which are not established stops.

The trial, which will run on four Community DASH routes in Panorama City, Watts, Pico-Union, and El Sereno, is part of efforts to make the city’s transport system more suited to the needs of all residents. On-demand drop-offs will be available before 7am and after 6pm.

The announcement comes alongside the publication of the “landmark” Changing Lanes: A Gender Equity Transportation Study which identifies barriers for women who depend on public transit.
