U.S. Department of Transportation and ITS America Offer Free Webinar on Integrating Ridesharing into Transit Operations

Title: Integrating Ridesharing into Transit Operations
Date: Thursday, November 9, 2017
Time: 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
Presenters: USDOT, Uber, Via

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will be hosting a webinar which will discuss how to integrate ride sharing opportunities into transit operations. This webinar will allow interested stakeholders to learn about different approaches for rideshare-transit integration.

Participants will hear from Uber and Via regarding their partnerships and integration with transit operations.

Traditional transit operations are designed to maximize the number of people served and optimize the service provided to as many of those people as possible. However, if a potential rider lives or works outside a half mile radius from the nearest stop, the rider usually forgoes transit use. Ridesharing (and other Mobility on Demand) services have been rapidly growing to bridge this first-mile/last-mile gap in transit coverage. Our speakers will discuss the integration of their ride sharing platforms with traditional transit operations.

This webinar is sponsored by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) and is free and open to the public.
