Micromobility and ridehailing can make transportation systems healthier and more equitable by reducing car ownership and storage. However, many of these services use gig workers—contingent workers who access work via app—to manage their fleet. There have been significant labor and health issues associated with gig work in the ridehailing industry. This panel discussion will examine the role of gig work in this new transportation system.
