The Role of Transportation Networking Companies in Megaregion Mobility: Optimizing multi-modality through the optimal combination and utilization of different modes for intra-megaregion travel

This proposed research aims to develop a theoretical framework for evaluating the role of transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft in megaregion mobility. In detail, this study will investigate the spatial and temporal pattern of TNCs usage, people’s perception of TNC service, the board impact of TNC with other transportation modes within the megaregional context, and the overall role TNC in megaregion mobility. This study will focus on three megaregions, The Texas Triangle, The Northeast Region and the Gulf Coast Region.
