NYMTC Brown Bag Discussion: Adapting to App-Based Ride Services
Bruce Schaller, Principal of Schaller Consulting, will discuss how the expansion of app-based ride services such as Uber and Lyft (also known as Transportation Network Companies or TNCs) are impacting New York’s transportation system. Every day, the increase of additional TNC vehicles are visible, but little is known about their true effect on traffic congestion, public transportation utilization and traditional car and taxi services. Mr. Schaller will examine the growth of app-based ride services and analyze future implications for achieving critical city goals for mobility, economic growth and environmental sustainability in New York and other major cities.
*Meeting will also be available as a Webinar*
