Not Your Mother's Taxi Service

11:30 AM - 01:00 PM Central Standard Time

560 Mission Street, Suite 700
San Francisco, CA , 94105

First-hand Experience and Insights from the Experts!

Ridesharing and ridematching services have transformed the way people are getting around the Bay Area. Over the past few years, tech “transportation network companies (TNC)” startups such as Uber, Sidecar and Lyft have faced legal challenges. However, a recent ruling by the CPUC and subsequent promulgation has made it clear that TNCs are here to stay. Come prepared with your smart phones to see firsthand how these TNC apps work, hear about the regulatory environment, perspectives of traditional taxi providers, and learn what is next for the evolving paradigm of taxi and passenger carrier services. Speakers include:

  • Marzia Zafar, Director, Policy & Planning Division, California Public Utilities Commission
  • Nelson D. Chan, Survey Researcher, UC Berkeley Institute of Transportation Studies, Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC)
  • Beth Stevens, Senior Counsel, Sidecar
  • Representative from SFMTA (invited)
  • Representative from other TCNs (invited)
