Do transit and transportation network companies compete or collaborate? It's not as simple as that. As new mobility service providers emerge, some see a competitive threat to transit, while other agencies have partnered with them. Throughout 2018, Terra Curtis and Buffy Ellis led a national study of twenty partnerships to prepare the upcoming TCRP report: Partnerships between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies. The outcome of this research is the Partnership Playbook, which synthesizes lessons learned and empowers the transit industry to be more proactive in its approach to working with TNCs. The panel also includes Eileen Collins, from TriMet, who was an early adopter of the Playbook. We are also joined by a representative of Via, a provider of shared TNC and microtransit rides engaged in public-private partnerships. Terra will lead a facilitated discussion covering this research and drawing out key strategies for cultivating successful partnerships.
1. Participants will understand the key regulatory considerations in forming partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs
2. Participants will learn about specific transit-TNC partnership case studies and key details, such as key performance indicators and pilot design
3. Participants will see how a transit agency has used the outcomes of this research -- the Partnership Playbook
4. Participants will learn from the perspective of a private mobility service provider and understand their motivations for entering into partnerships
