Fan, Yueyue and Yunteng Zhang (2020) Brief: Integrating Shared Mobility Services with Transit Could Produce Economic and Environmental Benefits. Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, Brief UCD-ITS-RR-20-21
This research brief summarizes the findings from the associated study, which examined the potential to improve transportation system efficiency by reevaluating and redefining the role of public transit and its design principles in the new context of technology and shared mobility. Specifically, it evaluated the financial feasibility of an integrative, multimodal transportation system where public and private mobility services coexist to maximize economic and environmental benefits and free up public transit resources to be reallocated more efficiently.
Key words: Transportation, public transit, mobility
