Uber and Lyft: Friend or Foe in the Battle for Livable Streets?

Published Thursday February 9

UberPOOL is more affordable because the cost of the trip is shared. The fare per trip is set at up to fifty percent cheaper than UberX during commuting hrs. (7-10 in the morning and 5-8 p.m.) and up to 25 percent cheaper every other time-whether Uber pairs you up with another passenger or not.

Lyft Line, of course, is the equivalent service from Uber’s competitor. By combining trips, both should reduce congestion-that is, if one goes with the theory that car sharing services pull people away from single occupancy, privately owned cars. But what if they’re pulling people away from transit, walking and cycling?

I would rank them #1: Parking #2: Parking #3: Parking
