Institute of Transportation Studies, Working Paper Series from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis

Abstract: 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.
