ASU study shows increases in Lyft and Uber ride-hailing services

Researchers at Arizona State University looked at ten years of data compiled by the National Household Travel Survey to gain insight into use of ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft. The researchers found that use of those services has doubled in the past ten years, but that such trips still represent only a half percent of all car trips. The study also found a negative impact on city revenues from parking fees or enforcement. We get more from PhD student Matthew Wigginton Conway, the study’s lead author, and Deborah Salon, a co-author and an assistant professor in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning at ASU.
