The Transportation Research Board (TRB) will conduct a webinar on May 15, 2018 from 2:00 – 3:30 PM EST 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. 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. Register for the webinar at MyTRB.org. Contact Reggie Gillum at RGillum@nas.edu with any registration questions.
