Useable data of the effects of ride-hailing service on travel behavior is sorely lacking, but a new study sheds light on critical questions about what companies like Uber and Lyft mean for transit, active transportation, and congestion.
Altamonte Springs was the first to subsidize Uber rides connecting to transit stations, in March 2016. Now Lake Mary, Longwood, Maitland, and Sanford join the ranks of this unique public-private partnership.
Accessibility remains a hot-button issue for transportation network companies, and the city of New York is now moving forward with a proposal that would not intact the chosen policies if companies like Uber were deciding.
A new Texas state law that regulates transportation network companies also overrides more restrictive local regulations, like Austin's requirement for fingerprinting drivers. Austin voters supported the tighter regulations at the ballot box last May.
