From Boston, to New York, to San Francisco, early research suggests that transportation network companies (TNCs) are pulling transit riders, walkers, and bikers off their feet and into cars, potentially increasing vehicle miles and congestion. One fear is that autonomous vehicles (AVs) will exacerbate this problem. It doesn’t have to be that way. There is the potential for TNCs today, and AVs tomorrow, to work together to support transit. Transit experts from around the country will discuss some of the issues that they are facing today and will likely face in the future, what they’d like to try (pilot), and how communities can ensure that transit is viable now and in the future.
