Equity Effects of Rare Events on Transportation Network Company and Transit Riders

In disadvantaged neighborhoods residents often must travel longer distances to and from transit stops, which creates challenges for human mobility. Transportation network companies (TNCs) (e.g., Uber) revolutionized mobility by detaching car access from car ownership. However, economic barriers to these services have limited mobility increases in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Here we will investigate the inequalities in TNC and public transit service across the demographic groups under normal and rare events, and create simulation tools to promote equitable mobility.
