Autonomous Vehicle Working Group
Formed January 2017


DC is preparing for the emergence of self-driving cars. Through a new Autonomous Vehicle Working Group, established by Mayor Bowser in February 2018, (Mayor's Order 2018-018), the District is engaging in peer-to-peer learning with other cities to explore implications of autonomous vehicles, including workforce and employment, urban planning, parking, and a range of other issues.

Bowser and Sherif Marakby, CEO of Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC (right), announced a partnership to test self-driving vehicles as the company works toward deploying an autonomous vehicle business in 2021.


The Working Group is comprised of representatives from the Office of the City Administrator, Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, District Department of Transportation, Office of Planning, Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, Metropolitan Police Department, Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, Department of Motor Vehicles, Office of the Chief Technology Officer, Department of Energy and the Environment, Department of General Services, Department of For-Hire Vehicles, Office on Aging, Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking and Office of Disability Rights.
