Uber, Lyft, and other ride-hailing companies have transformed the transportation marketplace in cities around the world. Their entry 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. This presentation focuses on one aspect of Uber's effect on cities: its effect on public transportation.

Professor Jonathan Hall of the University of Toronto will present his research on this important question.
