Ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft have transformed travel patters in the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere. Tonight on City Visions, we’ll look at the impacts of these companies on traffic and transit.
Has ride-hailing decreased car ownership, as promised? Does it increase traffic congestion? What about its impact on public transit use? Can our existing infrastructure support this burgeoning practice?
Joining me to discuss will be:
- Joe Castiglione, Deputy Director for Technology, Data and Analysis at the San Francisco County Transit Authority
- Joël Ramos, Regional Planning Director for TransForm
You can see an interactive map created by SFCTA of Uber and Lyft pick ups and drop offs in San Francisco, as an example of their impacts.
Tune in with your questions at 7pm tonight, 91.7 FM KALW in the Bay Area or on the web.
