Planning Horizons: Adoption of Ride-hailing in California and Impacts on the Use of Other Travel Modes

NOVEMBER 28, 2017

10:00AM-11:30AM

SPEAKER

Giovanni Circella – Director, 3 Revolutions Future Mobility Program, University of California, Davis

EVENTS OVERVIEW

Ride hailing services such as Uber and Lyft are quickly changing transportation with growing impacts on travel demand, vehicle miles traveled, and the use of other modes. Dr. Circella will present results from a study of emerging transportation technologies and trends being developed at UC Davis in cooperation with Caltrans and the National Center for Sustainable Transportation. In the study, they investigate the factors affecting the adoption and frequency of use of emerging transportation services, including shared mobility services such as car-sharing and ride-hailing (Uber/Lyft), and discuss the impacts the the use of Uber/Lyft has on the use of other travel modes, including public transportation and driving alone, among different sociodemographic groups and geographic regions.
