Impacts of Ridesourcing - Lyft and Uber - on Transportation Including VMT, Mode Replacement, Parking, and Travel Behavior
This doctoral dissertation analyzes the impacts of ridesourcing on several areas of transportation including: efficiency in terms of distance Vehicles Miles Traveled (VMT) versus Passenger Miles Traveled (PMT) – and travel times, mode replacement, VMT increase, parking, transportation equity, and travel behavior.
A driver going 5 miles would register VMT as 5, but a ride-sourcing app would register it as maybe 9, adding deadhead miles to accomplish the trip.
Ride-sourcing efficiency decreases with shorter trips, it could nearly double a 2 mile trip and make it 4 depending on where the driving comes from or if any circling is involved.
LyftLine and UberPool services can decrease the deficiencies of VMT and have a better environmental impact, however the driver receives lower payments and spends more time driving.
