Regulating App-Based Mobility Services
This Roundtable aims to identify appropriate regulatory frameworks for app-based mobility services. It examines the rationale for economic regulation for these services in light of market imperfections in their delivery and in public transport markets more generally. It considers how transport externalities, including congestion on the roads and at the curb, can be managed and looks at competition issues. The Roundtable also reviews existing regulatory barriers to the deployment of shared ride services where they might be advantageous for complementing conventional public transport services.
