Seamless Multi-Modal Connectivity Colloquium: Emerging Knowledge for Ridesharing

Prof Martin Savelsbergh recently spoke about dynamic ridesharing at the “Seamless Multi-Modal Connectivity Colloquium: Emerging Knowledge for Ridesharing” at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, USA. The colloquium was sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and brought together representatives of government, industry, and academia.  Nine invited speakers helped set the scene during the day by discussing a wide range of topics, from road pricing to van pooling to slugging to real-time on-demand ridesharing.  Breakout sessions focused on obstacles preventing large-scale deployment of ridesharing and schemes to encourage or incentivise ridesharing.
