  • Featured Overview
  • Date Enacted: Jan 25, 2018

Summary

A new study by SUMC for the Transit Cooperative Research Program finds that peak use of transportation network companies (TNCs) like Uber and Lyft comes on weekends and evenings, not during rush hours when public-transit use is highest. SUMC’s findings were based on one of the first uses of origin-destination trip data provided by a major TNC. This finding was presented in TCRP Report 195, 

Broadening Understanding of the Interplay between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Personal Automobiles. You can read more about the study on the Shared-Use Mobility Center blog.
