For-hire vehicle services such as ridesourcing are becoming increasingly prevalent across the globe, and taxis continue to operate, although now with considerably more competition. Further, TNCs and taxis are partnering with other mobility providers more than ever before.  This session will explore the demographics of ridesourcing and taxi users, travel behavior impacts, and case studies in public-private partnerships.
