Move LA Mission
Move LA’s mission is to build a broad constituency that will advocate for the development of a comprehensive, diverse, robust, clean, and financially sound public transportation system for Los Angeles County and champion strategies to accelerate its implementation.
Move LA Goals
> Ensure timely and faithful implementation of Measure R, the November 2008, voter-approved 1/2 cent sales tax for transportation in Los Angeles County.
> Build a continuing dialogue between the business, labor, environmental and other constituencies to create an ongoing coalition in support of the development of a robust transit system in Los Angeles County.

> Ensure that countywide goals, including air quality and greenhouse-gas emission reduction goals as well as vehicle miles traveled (VMT) reduction goals, drive transportation decision-making in Los Angeles County.
> Ensure transit-oriented land use policies are fully integrated into the transportation planning and implementation programs of LA Metro, LA County and local cities, with the inclusion of affordable housing and open space, to meet the needs of the growing Los Angeles population.
> Support broad-based economic opportunity and job development in Los Angeles County as well as social, economic, and environmental justice through transportation system development.
