Tell the City Council to put the brakes on LADOT’s rider surveillance program
Los Angeles riders deserve privacy in the bike and scooter trips they take —be they for work, medical appointments, social engagements, prayer, or other First Amendment-protected activities. The next phase in LADOT's Mobility Data Specification (MDS) will force dockless ride-sharing services to push precise location data to the city for every ride in Los Angeles. However, without responsible use and privacy policies, the department remains out of compliance with its duty to protect the people of Los Angeles.
Thousands of Angelenos rely on these services every day. We can't let the LADOT sign away their right to privacy. Tell your City Council member to put the brakes on this dangerous program.
