New Transportation App Offers One-Stop Shop for Commuting Choices

LOS ANGELES ( — A new transportation app promises to revolutionize the way Angelenos commute by offering a one-stop mobile access to all public and private forms of transportation.

The Go LA app lists route options for public transit, ride-hailing services, taxis, driving, bicycling, motorbikes and various other transportation modes in Los Angeles.

The app ranks each transportation method by which is cheapest, quickest and even greenest. Go LA also provides fitness-related information by showing how many calories are burned with each transportation method.

Xerox partnered with the city of Los Angeles and other transportation agencies and companies to create the app available for iOS and Android devices.

"The Go LA app captures the universe of transportation options and computes the shortest, cheapest, and most sustainable way to get to your destination," according to the Xerox website.

"Go LA will help Angelenos get where they need to go by connecting smart technology with infrastructure," Mayor Eric Garcetti said. "The app helps users move around in faster, cheaper, and greener ways by linking them to all of the transportation options available to them — from freeways, to Metro, to bike routes — while also providing the city with useful data that can help us shape a more mobile future for the people who live and work here."

Xerox plans to add the ability to set up carpool rides and parking information to the app in the future.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple app store by searching "Go LA Xerox."
