Los Angeles is primed to be among the first city to see the impact of driverless vehicles. As a care city, Los Angeles will likely see the major changes and benefits that come with driverless vehicles, according to research from CBRE. The report specifically calls out Downtown Los Angeles and the Inland Empire as the submarkets that could see the biggest impact from driverless vehicles.

“The size and complexity of the Los Angeles area will result in a targeted rollout,” Andrea Cross, head of office research for the Americas at CBRE, tells GlobeSt.com. “Because Los Angeles County is comprised of many distinct yet interconnected cities, full implementation will require regulatory approvals from a large number of jurisdictions, potentially lengthening the time that it will take for AVs to be able to travel freely throughout the area.”
