With the enactment of SB 1014 (2018) – the Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program – CARB and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will develop and implement new requirements for transportation network companies (TNCs) for innovative ways to curb GHG emissions as new mobility options grow at a rapid pace.

The UC Davis research team will gather information on several aspects associated with the adoption of ridehailing services, i.e. those provided by transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Lyft and Uber in California, and their impacts on the transportation system, society and the environment.  UCD will carry out a number of analyses to help inform CARB on several dimensions of interest, including general aspects of TNC Driving Experience, Vehicle Ownership/Rental Model, information about vehicle usage by TNC drivers (new sales due to TNC, vehicle replacement expections, type of vehicle preferred, role of fuel economy, etc)m the potential for electrification, the effect of deadheading, barriers to increased poolings, sociodemographics and equity issues, connection to transit and to active modes of transportation.
