Looking for relevant research:

Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.

One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?

@chendricks I have seen this reported, but don't recall the details or primary source. I think it was a strong decline in transit usage as more people used uber instead - clear net increase in car trips

@plantarum Sorry for the late reply! Thank you for letting me know. This is what I suspected.
