Transportation Benefits

The City of Los Angeles Offers its employees valuable transportation benefits. If you share the ride, you can save time, money, decrease traffic, reduce air pollution, and reduce stress.

Commute Options and Parking

The Commute Options & Parking Section (COPS) of the Personnel Department administers the operation of the City Rideshare Program and is responsible for the issuance of employee parking permits for City-owned and leased parking lots. The function of COPS is to provide City employees with current information on commute alternatives, and to encourage employees to do their part in the City's efforts to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality in the Los Angeles Basin. The COPS coordinates the Vanpool, Carpool, Transit Subsidy Reimbursement, and Bike/Walk Reimbursement, and Telecommuting Programs.
