The Santa Monica Department of Transportation (DOT) plans, builds, maintains, and operates a multi-modal transportation network that connects people with opportunity, improves lives, and protects the environment. DOT leads the City of Santa Monica’s vision for a non-auto-centric future, while ensuring safe, reliable, equitable and sustainable access to streets, through innovative bus, bike, pedestrian, micromobility, and first-last mile options. 

DOT combines planning, operations, maintenance, design, and programming for fixed-route, paratransit, and multi-modal transportation services under one administration. DOT also oversees traffic engineering, shared mobility and micromobility regulation, transportation permitting, and parking operations in the City.
