This blog post discusses how ridesharing and autonomous vehicle technologiesĀ could change the future of transportation in urban areas and how city governments should ensure that the service complements the public transportation infrastructure. It explores public policies that, to some extent, reduce the benefits of ridesharing services in cities, such as limiting the number of vehicles operating, taxes on the services, and geofencing ridesharing apps within underserved areas.
