Uber's Impact

Wall Street Journal:  "There is limited information about how these services affect travel patterns, but the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Davis has documented a 6% reduction in public-transit in major cities that use them."

“'We find that 49% to 61% of ride-hailing trips would have not been made at all, or by walking, biking or transit,' the researchers reported."

Others report that ride-hailing services are vital for getting to and from transit depots like BART.
