HAPPENING TODAY: The Shared-Use Mobility Center, a partnership designed to connect and integrate existing transportation services (including transit and taxis) with shared-use systems (like ridesharing and bike-sharing), launches today with a party in Chicago and a workshop featuring representatives from Lyft, Uber, Chicago DOT, the Chicago Transit Authority and others.
