Transit systems partnering with TNCs are described either as a universal solution, or transit-killing competition. We examine the realities with a number of systems who have partnered with, or who have been impacted by TNCs in their city.


Andrew Salzberg

Andrew Salzberg is the Head of Transportation Policy and Research for UBER, who will be bringing word of their innovative partnerships with transit agencies for both first and last mile, and full-service solutions - including Innisfill, ON, the only Canadian municipality to use a full ride-hailing solution for their delivery of public transportation.

Lyndsay Mitchell

Lyndsay Mitchell serves as the Comprehensive Planning Manager for the City of Arlington's Community Development and Planning Department. Lyndsay and her team cover issues related to comprehensive planning, economic development, transportation, capital budgeting, neighborhood planning, and urban design. Arlington, TX is a city of 400,000 people that has no conventional transit system, and relies entirely on ride hailing for its public transportation.

Jon Walker

Jon Walker is a Transportation Policy Manager for Lyft. Externally, Jon works closely with public and private transportation stakeholders. Jon is particularly focused on advanced city design, electric vehicles, and autonomous vehicles and how these three elements together can remake our cities.

Traffic congestion? Changes in transit usage? Parking issues? With all the rhetoric, what are the facts? We hear from researchers and industry experts who have done the digging to find out what the data tells us about TNCs.

During 2016-17, Jeff was the interim director of Oakland's first Department of Transportation. Jeff will bring his unique perspective on the benefits and pitfalls of working with TNCs from the municipal point of view.

Bruce Schaller

Bruce Schaller is a former senior official in the New York City Department of Transportation and was recognized by the New York media as "one of New York's foremost transportation experts."

The challenge of finding the new role for Transit in the urban mobility mix goes far beyond TNCs. With mobility as a service, transit can form the backbone for a variety of services. We hear from leaders in this field as to how they have implemented those systems, and what the benefits are.
