Transit Systems and the Impacts of Shared Mobility
Mobility is fundamental to quality of life and economic prosperity in cities. Public agencies have an interest in better understanding how the emergence and evolution of shared mobility services is changing the transportation playing field. Transit Center commissioned Sam Schwartz Consulting, in partnership with the Shared Use Mobility Center, to perform a national study with the goal to better understand the evolving relationship between fixed route transit systems and emerging forms of shared mobility such as ridesourcing, bikeshare, carshare, and microtransit. This work is aimed at informing public transit providers, transportation agencies, public officials, and the public, all of whom play a role in ensuring that cities maintain effective, efficient, and equitable system.
