TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, September 29, 2016 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that discusses research from Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 188: Shared Mobility and the Transformation of Public Transit. The ability to conveniently request, track, and pay for trips via mobile devices is transforming transportation mobility options. The report examines the relationship between public transportation, including paratransit and demand-responsive services, and shared modes, including bikesharing, carsharing, microtransit, and ridesourcing services provided by companies such as Uber and Lyft. This webinar will focus on several of the report’s key findings. The presenters will also discuss the opportunities and challenges for public transportation as they relate to technology-enabled mobility services and potential actions that public agencies may take to promote cooperation between public and private mobility providers.
Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is no fee associated with this webinar. A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual.
Moderated by: Tim Frisbie, Shared Use Mobility Center
