Travel Pal

Funded by Metro as a two-year demonstration project, the South Bay Cities Council of Governments’ (SBCCOG) Smart Mobility Demonstration Project ran from 2016 through 2017 and was branded “South Bay Travel Pal.” In collaboration with transportation consultants, UrbanTrans North America, the SBCCOG’s pilot project tested the RideAmigos ‘UNITY Platform’ software as a mobility decision-making tool for events, venues, organizations, and individuals in the South Bay of Los Angeles County.

The South Bay Travel Pal program was first conceived by the SBCCOG in 2012 as a pilot to test the viability of a software platform that combined travel options to help consumers make better mobility choices based on their trip purpose and trip origin/destination. The scope of the pilot project extended to all the South Bay cities of Los Angeles County which include: Carson, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Inglewood, Lawndale, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Torrance, and the Harbor City/San Pedro/Wilmington communities of the City of Los Angeles, along with the unincorporated areas of the County of Los Angeles Districts 2 and 4.
