Dr. Circella presented results from a study that investigates 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).
The study will shed light on the evolving impacts of new mobility options on various components of travel behavior and vehicle ownership, how these solutions expand travel options and the circumstances under which travelers increase travel multimodality and may reduce their reliance on the use of private vehicles.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis conducted a review of practices in curbside management, and they conducted simulations to evaluate the impact of different management and design strategies on travel time, congestion, vehicle travel, and emissions in residential, commercial, and mixed-use neighborhoods in San Francisco.
The data used in the creation of a cost model of travel choices (e.g. deciding to own, ride in, and drive a private vehicle or use pooled or solo ridesourcing) that individuals make related to urban vehicle travel. The project involved convening focus groups and administering a pilot survey of professionals.
