Eliciting Preferences of Ride-Hailing Users and Drivers

Eliciting Preferences of Ride-Hailing Users and Drivers

The ‘ride-hailing’ services offered by transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft have rapidly disrupted personal transportation, particularly in cities. Schaller (2018) reports that TNCs provided 2.6 billion rides in 2017 in the United States (U.S.), a 37% increase from 2016.

Once Consumers Adopt an Electric Vehicle, Do They Go Back?

The lack of repeat adoption of low carbon technologies has implications for climate change mitigation. In this insight, we explore how many electric vehicle owners dispose of their electric vehicles and do not buy another when purchasing their next car. We also investigate their reasons for discontinuing their electric vehicle ownership. We highlight the policy implications of these findings, comparing policies aimed at promoting adoption vis-à-vis sustaining adoption.
