A good reporter is always supposed to ask five questions: “who, what, when, where and why?” A new report on ride-hailing provides a range of keen insights about the demand for these services, and has important implications for predicting the future of autonomous vehicles.

There’s a new report from Shared Use Mobility Center, published by the Transportation Research Board, with a ponderous title: “ Broadening Understanding of the Interplay Between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Personal Automobiles . The report is a over a hundred pages long, and filled with interesting and often arcane detail about who’s using services like Lyft and Uber, where and when they use them and how this is affecting demand for street space and transit. If you’re a real transportation geek, you’ll want to read the whole thing. But if you aren’t (or in the meantime, until you’ve had a chance to read it) we can boil the whole thing down to five words: drinking, parking, flying, peaking and pricing.

The heart of the work is an analysis of trip-making data supplied by ride hailing companies, similar data collected in San Francisco, and surveys of more than 10,000 customers of ride-haling services in five cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, Seattle and Washington, DC. The study also explored the question of whether use of ride-hailing services had any impact on transit ridership in these cities.

The slightly longer narrative take on the report is this: Ride-hail demand is driven by drinking (people who want to avoid having drive their own vehicle on Friday and Saturday nights), by the cost of parking (ride-hailing is a more economical alternative to bringing your own car places where parking is expensive). People traveling by air seem to value their time more highly, and may have no access to a personal private vehicle at one end of their flight. Ride-hailing is highly peaked in those times (especially Friday and Saturday nights) and places (downtowns and airports) in which there is demand. Finally, ride hail trips tend to be short (just 2-4 miles), because customers pay for each additional mile and minute.

The report also tells us a lot about where these services aren’t valued.There’s little demand for ride-hailing when parking is cheap or free, when drivers expect to be sober, and for longer trips, and to destinations that don’t have a high density of people and destinations (or an airport).

As a result of these factors (especially pricing, parking and flying), most ride haild trips tend to take place in a small subset of a region’s neighborhoods (especially in and around downtown, where there’s a density of customers and destinations, and where parking tends to be pricey). Take Chicago for example:

There’s a strong economic implication here: The income and value of time of travelers, and the availability and price of alternatives figures prominently in when, where and whether people use ride hailing services. The risks and penalties associated with drunk driving (legal, financial and moral) likely lead many people to choose ride-hailing when they consume alcohol; in addition unlike journey to work trips, social trips may be groups rather than individuals.

People use ride-hailing services “on an occasional basis” and for trips where speed and reliability are important. Few people use it for commuting on a regular basis.

What this suggests is that the markets for ride-hailed vehicles today–and for their successors, fleets of autonomous vehicles tomorrow–are likely to be shaped by many of these same factors. Demand will be highest where people, and trip origins and destinations are densest, where parking is expensive, where and among populations that have a high value of travel time savings (and the ability to pay). Ride-hailing and autonomous vehicles are going to affect some people, some trips, and some places much more than others.

The content of this report is an excellent addition to our knowledge about ride-hailing and its place in the urban transportation system. It’s a shame that much of the most salient content and its implications are buried in the report. (Just a thought: starting the title of your report with the words “broadening understanding of the interplay” is not an attention grabber). More tangibly, while the report’s data implicate parking costs as a key factor in ride-hailing demand, that observation isn’t made in the report and the word parking appears on just 6 of the report’s more than 100 pages. We’ve tried to punch up the findings a bit to that the meat of this report gets the attention we think it deserves.

I remember my boyfriend sent me a link to read this post one day in August 2008. I was really depressed at work, returning from a maternity leave and having to start all over again. It really helped me focus on the most important things, and today I feel I have rebuilt a certain credibility with my colleagues (even if I still have a lot of work left to do). I think it’s quite usefull to come back and read this after a while. Keeps you on track. Thanks

Good article — I think your descriptions of the types of people in most jobs are completly accurate. Generally I think the cream rises to the top, even if it isn’t obvious at the outset. It helps to really like what you do — most people in this position realize the contradiction of blaming their career problems on others!

Great stuff Chris.

Unbelievable how simple YET effective this is. I think this post should be required reading for everyone that takes on a new job.

I thought I already knew how to stand out at my job but then I realized that was then and this is now. I knew how to go in and make a great first impression, but I’ve been at my current position for over a year now. If I had read this before starting at my current position, I think I could have avoided some mistakes. Reading it now has given me some ideas on how to continue to be successful and indispensable.

As both an HR recruiter and a non-conformist (I recruit on the side for $), I can say that one other thing really makes people stand out. The ability to communicate-clearly, quickly, accurately using good grammar and speaking skills. VERY HARD TO FIND.

Chris, Your advice is right on the money. I think loving your job has a lot to do with your mindset in a job. I LOVE my job and it was great validation to read that because I’m in a happy space at work, I’m following through with all the advice you’ve given…without even knowing it. Excellent insight!

This is just what I needed – good advice, hope I can live to use it all. I’ve been put in a very bad position at work to “tattle” on someone so the employer can terminate this person. I fell for it and now I hate work and others hate me. I want to get back to the positive actions and attitudes that you have written about. I’m so glad I found your site. I do not respect my manager and I will overcome the problems, why am I going to a workplace I hate everyday? Time get back to the basics or better yet, maybe the golden rule!

Summary:

Recall gives voters the right to reconsider their choice of an elected official; however, it does not automatically result in removal of an official from office. It provides an opportunity for voters to require an elected official to run for office again before the expiration of his or her term.

An official must be in office for one year before a recall can be initiated.

The number of signatures required to trigger a recall is one-quarter of the number of votes cast for governor in the most recent gubernatorial election.

The requirements for initiating recall efforts are very specific and must be carefully followed. The rules may be different depending on whether the official is a Congressional, State, County or Local official. Please consult the recall manuals on this page.

Anyone considering conducting a recall petition effort should contact the Wisconsin Elections Commission staff at 608-266-8005.

Recall committees that have registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission are listed in the Aerosoles Womens Trend Setter Slipon Loafer Black White Snake qIZ7SU6

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued Opinion 4-11 on November 3, 2011, regarding whether, in a recall election for governor, there must be an election of governor and lieutenant governor jointly under article V, section 3 of the Wisconsin Constitution, regardless of whether there has been a recall petition for the lieutenant governor under article XIII, section 12 of the Wisconsin Constitution.

The Government Accountability Board ordered recall elections for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and four members of the State Senate, based on the six recall petitions filed on January 17, 2012 against those officeholder.

Recall primaries were held May 8, 2012. Primary results are available here .

Memo to JCF Requesting Funds for Recall Petition Processing

In Wisconsin, election petitions have always been public records, and in the interest of transparency, the Government Accountability Board continued that tradition by posting copies of the petitions online.

Recall petitions were removed from the website in early 2013 because the recall process is complete. They are still available in electronic format by making a public records request. The cost is $40 for four DVDs containing all the petitions in PDF form. Send requests and make checks payable to: Wisconsin Elections Commission, PO Box 7984, Madison, WI 53707-7984.

Like all other public officials, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin are not eligible for recall until they have served at least one year in the current term of office. An official who has been recalled and survived a recall election cannot be recalled again during his or her current term in office.

The number of signatures required to trigger a recall election for Governor and/or Lieutenant Governor is one-quarter votes cast for Governor in last gubernatorial election.

The county spreadsheet contains data from all 72 counties. Of the 1,850 municipalities, 143 did not respond by the time the report was finalized on Friday afternoon, January 6.

The purpose of high school is to prepare students to be a contributing member of society (or rather, that be the purpose). The purpose of college is to prepare students for a job in the field they have chosen to be in. If Intermediate Algebra is not needed to prepare a student for a certain job, why would it be required? It seems to be a waste of time for the student and the professor. Every class should have meaning and purpose for a student.

Learning math, like learning language, has value other than pragmatic application alone. Math teaches logical thinking and critical thinking. These are hallmarks of the educated mind. As we can see from the state of political discourse in our country, America seems to be failing at teaching logical and critical thinking skills.

Dumbing down education to make it accessible to students who are not prepared for college-level work doesn’t seem to be working, does it? Is it possible that giving students less and less in pursuit of equity or some other admirable goal is not a good idea?

What needs to happen is not to dumb down college curricula but to smarten up K-12 curricula.

Sounds like a reasonable argument, but there is no evidence that mimicking algebra manipulations leads to critical thinking (although a redesigned algebra experience that focuses on algebraic reasoning and application to real situations might). In fact there is a lot of evidence from research in cognitive psychology that indicates this "exercise the brain" theory doesn't really work and that development of skills in one context does not easily transfer to other experiences.

In fact there is a lot of evidence from research in cognitive psychology that indicates this “exercise the brain” theory doesn’t really work and that development of skills in one context does not easily transfer to other experiences. So I think that any argument that focuses on exercising the brain and a general increase in critical thinking, or any argument that depends on “develops character because of the struggle” sounds a lot better than it really is in practice.

The cause of the reproducibility crisis in science is that too many scientists think they understand statistics when in fact they don't and they don't because they were never taught that the roots of estimating probability densities pass through calculus and increasingly with multilevel models in topology. Just because someone can be taught to dump data into STATA and click the right buttons doesn't mean they understand statistics. In fact all they really know if … Read More
