Theme: Transit linkages with new mobility and micro-mobility, and the survival of both post COVID-19
COVID-19 has caused a severe decline in public ridership worldwide. This decline on ridership is on top of the slow ridership declines that have been witnessed over the past decade almost everywhere in the US. Meanwhile, ride-hailing and micro-mobility companies which were rapidly expanding over the past decade, faced almost as precipitous declines during the pandemic. How can these industries survive the ridership decline? Is there a policy or technology solution that responds to all three industries? Are partnerships the solution? How important are common platforms? Will COVID-19 cause driverless vehicles to arrive earlier and how will their arrival change the trajectory of these industries?
