Virtual Convenings and Policy Series to Explore Response Strategies and Next Steps for Transit

Research Team: Juan Matute (lead), Ryan Caro

University: UCLA

Project Description: Two online convenings will be organized at which high-level participants will discuss the structural and COVID-19 related challenges and opportunities for transit in California. One online convening will take the form of a follow-up to the 2018 UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium: From Public Transit to Public Mobility and consider expanding the role of transit districts and municipal operators to include public mobility services such as public bikeshare, microtransit, and a statewide technological platform to enable seamless cross-provider mobility. A second convening will draw from other transit-related COVID-19 response and recovery work at UCLA ITS. In addition, a public policy options brief series will be organized to help decision-makers consider significant changes to transit strategy and finance in California.

Status: In Progress
