Oct. 23: Is Uber helping or hurting public transportation?

Professor reports on his research into effect of ride-hailing services

Professor Jonathan Hall of the University of Toronto presents his research on the effect of Uber, Lyft and other ride-hailing companies at S. Walter Stewart Library, 170 Memorial Park Ave., on Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m.

The entry of these services into cities has been controversial. They have been credited with providing a reliable and affordable transportation option, serving neglected areas of cities, and providing meaningful employment. Against these benefits, they have been accused of being unsafe, creating congestion, destroying stable jobs, and flouting the law.

Prof. Hall’s presentation focuses on their effect on public transportation.
