LA Council Bans Sharing of Mobility Service Data With Law Enforcement


Los Angeles’ Department of Transportation will be prohibited from disclosing mobility service data via its open source tool to law enforcement agencies after the City Council voted to update the municipal code Tuesday.

The ordinance seeks to address privacy concerns over Mobility Data Specification, which exchanges data with shared mobility device providers and fleet managers.

The department uses MDS to manage shared scooters, bikes, taxis and buses, and it could be used in the future for autonomous vehicles and drones. MDS does not provide the city access to personal information like names or contact information of users.
