            What is this indicator?

            This indicator measures the total registered vehicles per capita.

            Why is it important?

            The City of Santa Monica provides a variety of sustainable transportation modes, including biking, walking, and public transit. If more residents take advantage of these alternative transportation options and forego their vehicles, both traffic congestion and carbon emissions from vehicles will drop—key components of a more sustainable, cleaner city.

            How are we doing?

            Vehicle ownership in 2014 was 0.8 vehicles registered per capita. Use of sustainable transportation modes among residents is slowly improving but a behavioral shift is needed to realize the feasibility of these modes within Santa Monica. A future car sharing program will enable more residents to function without owning a car. Santa Monica’s 2010 Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE)calls for implementing a car share program as part of the city’s comprehensive plan to increase multi-modal transportation options and decrease congestion and traffic in the city. In 2012 City Council passed a resolution allowing car sharing permits for use of parking spaces. A request for proposals (RFP) for car share programs is anticipated to be released in summer 2015.

            How can we help?

      Data Governance

      describes the quality of the data itself. Governance issues generally indicate that the data source is considered incomplete or unreliable.

      Model Health

      describes the quality of the predictive model. If the model health is poor, the trend prediction should not be trusted.
