5/15 - Broadening Understanding of the Interplay Between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Person

Updated: Jan 2


As ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft gain in popularity, are they affecting the use of public transit and personal automobiles?

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) will host a webinar from 2-3 p.m. ET Tuesday, May 15 featuring research from Broadening Understanding of the Interplay Between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Personal Automobiles (TCRP Research Report 195). The webinar will share research findings that draw on a variety of sources, including one of the first uses of transportation network company (TNC) trip origin-destination data.

May 15, 2018

1:00 - 2:30pm CST

Eligible for 1.5 CM Credits

FREE!

Presenters from the Shared Use Mobility Center will outline findings and insights from this research about how, when, and where TNCs are most frequently used and the relationship between TNC use, transit ridership and driving commutes. They also will provide a range of recommendations that may assist public transit agencies and other public entities attempting to engage with TNC services in large, mid-sized, and smaller urban areas.

Speakers:

  • Sharon Feigon, Shared Use Mobility Center

  • Colin Murphy, Shared Use Mobility Center

  • Prashanth Gururaja, Shared Use Mobility Center (moderator)
