A New Mobility Solution for Traffic-Plagued West L.A.

May 5, 2021

Congratulations to SCG client MoceanLab for the recent expansion of its Mocean Carshare platform – L.A.’s first free-floating car-share service – from Downtown and Eagle Rock to West Los Angeles. The low-emission hybrid electric vehicles are designed to reduce congestion, at about the same cost of renting an e-scooter.

Held in the heart of the popular Sawtelle Japantown commercial area, the West LA launch featured remarks by City Councilmember and Metro Board Member Mike Bonin, as well as leaders from the Department of Transportation, West Los Angeles-Sawtelle Neighborhood Council, and Urban Movement Labs. The event culminated in Councilmember Bonin and MoceanLab Chief Operating Officer Dave Gallon demonstrating the on-demand service – with Bonin behind the wheel.

MoceanLab is an ambitious mobility laboratory, created exclusively for Los Angeles by Hyundai Motor Group. The nimble start-up aims to expand affordable, accessible, environmentally sustainable mobility options throughout the city.
