AT&T and the City of Los Angeles are looking to team up to make LA one of the smartest cities in America. To foster the creation of a Smart City, AT&T and LA are in talks regarding a public-private partnership.

“Access to information is the foundation of equality, opportunity, and prosperity,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “We are establishing unique partnerships as we deploy new networks and technologies across L.A. — and we’re excited to be discussing with AT&T how to empower Angelenos with new tools that could make their lives easier and our communities stronger.”

LA is at the forefront of using technology and innovation to improve the community. Traffic, natural disaster preparedness, and public safety will be top of mind.

“We’re exploring possibilities with the City of LA to create a technology-first environment that can improve experiences for residents and visitors across the community,” said Michael Zeto, Vice President and General Manager of Smart Cities, AT&T. “We’re looking to help the city improve problems like traffic congestion and public safety.”
