Webinar: Who’s Riding TNCs and What Does it Mean for Public Agencies?

May 9, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, May 15 2018 that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 195: Broadening Understanding of the Interplay Between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Personal Automobiles.

This research explores how transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft are affecting the use of public transit and personal automobiles in several regions by drawing on several sources, including one of the first uses of TNC trip origin-destination data. The webinar will outline key findings and insights from this research about how, when, and where TNCs are most frequently used, and the relationship between this use, public transit usage, and driving commutes. The presenters will also provide a range of recommendations that may assist public transit agencies and other public entities attempting to engage with TNC services in large, midsized, and smaller urban areas.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program.  The registration cap for this webinar will has been reached. For those unable to register, the webinar will be recorded and posted here after the webinar is over.
