Policies To Further Mobility

Las Vegas, the region, and the state have developed and promoted policies to further mobility. The city has placed more than 123 lane-miles of fiber optic cable, which will allow for the implementation of autonomous and connected vehicles throughout the heavily traveled urban core.
Bring Your Business To Las Vegas

Nevada was the first state in the country to pass legislation to legalize autonomous vehicle testing, and the city of Las Vegas recently hosted a policy conference on autonomous vehicles, led by Governor Brian Sandoval, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the Nevada Department of Transportation. Through all of these initiatives, our policymakers have been the tip of the spear; providing a protected, but progressive, environment for launching innovation.

By enhancing Las Vegas’ infrastructure through smart city innovation, we expect to deploy solutions that will enhance mobility, reduce congestion, improve resident safety, reduce our carbon footprint, and stimulate economic growth and diversity. The planning tools that stem from improved data sources and analytics in a smart city will allow us to not only overcome these challenges, but to also proactively mitigate them for many years to come.

Our Innovation Goals

Provide improved interoperability among all of our public service sectors: transportation, energy, public works, facilities and public safety/law enforcement through open-source data sharing, real-time data analytics and decision support.
Keep citizens and tourists safe and connected and provide them with a host of transportation choices and an easy way to pay for those services.
Catalyze economic growth through innovative partnerships that showcase technology to progress forward thinking and create fulfilling jobs for our residents.
Enhance freight mobility to bring goods into our city efficiently.
Provide reliable and energy-efficient transportation options that enhance mobility for all people. including low-income and senior populations
Support continued acceptance and ultimate ubiquity of electric vehicles (EVs) with unlimited access to smarter, more efficient charging capabilities
Establish a platform that not only showcases transportation technology, but practically applies those technologies (i.e., innovation) to make our infrastructure smarter
