Join us for a special webinar hosted by DePaul University on Thursday, April 16, 2020 from Noon - 1 p.m., CT, (1 - 2 p.m. ET) exploring key lessons learned from partnerships to provide on-demand service between public agencies and Lyft, Uber, and Via. We’ll explore best practices, evolving strategies, and how agencies are “moving up the learning curve” to maximize the mobility benefits. We’ll consider the advantages and disadvantages of different types of partnerships and the hurdles that public agencies frequently face. We’ll hear first-hand how planners are refining their programs and evaluating their performance.      

The webinar also marks the release of the Chaddick Institute’s new study: “21 Key Takeaways from Partnerships between Public Transit Providers & Transportation Network Companies in the United States”, available April 14, 2020. Click here to download study (23 pages, PDF) after April 14!
