City Visions with host Ethan Elkind discusses the impact of companies like Uber and Lyft on Bay Area traffic and transit. 

The rapid growth of ride-sharing has undeniably changed the patterns of traffic on our roads. Has ride-sharing decreased car ownership as promised? Does it increase traffic congestion? What is its impact on public transit use? Can our existing infrastructure support this burgeoning practice?

Tonight's guests:

Joe Castiglione, Deputy Director for Technology, Data and Analysis at the San Francisco County Transit Authority.


Joël Ramos, Regional Planning Director for TransForm
