91 A P P E N D I X A Transit Agency Survey Instrument

92 Partnerships Between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) Intro to Survey TCRP J-11 Task 26: Transit Agency Survey We understand that the transit agency you represent has explored or initiated a relationship (formal or informal) with a “transportation network company” (TNC), such as Lyft or Uber. Our firm, Nelson\Nygaard, has been hired by the Transportation Research Board to complete national research on such partnerships and collaborations. Our goal is to collect insights from transit agency partners involved in these programs to develop specific and practical guidance for other public transportation agencies across the country interested in developing programs of their own. The survey is comprised of multiple-choice questions. We hope to follow up with you or an appropriate transit agency contact following your response to ensure we have a firm understanding of the partnership or collaboration approach. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. This survey should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. Note: SurveyMonkey supports the following internet browsers: Google Chrome 18 and later; Firefox 24 and later; Safari 7 or later; Microsoft Edge; and Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, 10, & 11. If you are using an unsupported browser, you may encounter issues while completing this survey. 1

Transit Agency Survey Instrument 93 Skip Logic Disclaimer - PLEASE READ TCRP J-11 Task 26: Transit Agency Survey This survey uses skip logic to reduce completion time. Skip logic eliminates inapplicable questions based on your previous responses to survey questions. Due to technical limitations of SurveyMonkey, you will reach a page titled "Skip Logic Page" at several points during this survey. On these pages, please select the response button(s) to continue to the next page of the survey. Your selection on these pages will not change your response to previous survey questions. 2

94 Partnerships Between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) Basic Transit Agency Information TCRP J-11 Task 26: Transit Agency Survey 1. What is the name of the transit agency you represent?* Name Position Daytime Phone Number Email 2. Please provide your contact information for follow-up questions and so that we can distribute the results of our study: 3. Does your transit agency accept and consider unsolicited proposals? An unsolicited proposal is a written application for a new or innovative idea submitted to an agency on the initiative of the offeror for the purpose of obtaining a contract with the government. It is not in response to an official RFI, RFQ, or RFP. (Select one) Yes, through an official unsolicited proposals program Yes, on an ad hoc basis No 3

Transit Agency Survey Instrument 95 Basic Information about the Relationship - Part I TCRP J-11 Task 26: Transit Agency Survey For the purposes of this research, we define a TNC as “an organization whether a corporation, partnership, sole proprietor, or other form…that provides prearranged transportation services for compensation using an online-enabled application (app) or platform to connect passengers with drivers using their personal vehicles.” [1] We are interested in hearing from transit agencies that have explored, initiated, or entered into a formal or informal relationship with one or more TNCs. Further, we are exploring both collaborations and partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs. For the purposes of this research, a collaboration is a relationship that is not highly formalized or structured, where entities work toward achieving success in their shared goals. A partnership builds on collaboration and is more formalized, sometimes including legal agreements. [1] 2013, September 19. California Public Utilities Commission, Decision 13-09-045.

TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Research Report 204: Partnerships Between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) is designed to help transit agencies that have decided to pursue partnerships with one or more TNCs. The report provides information on where, when, and how partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs should be considered and pursued.

As new mobility service providers emerge, many public transit agencies have partnered, or are in the process of partnering, with such providers. Among these providers are TNCs. While partnerships between transit agencies and private mobility providers are not new, partnerships with TNCs create unique opportunities and challenges as both parties work toward mutually beneficial program models.

TCRP Report 204 provides 20 in-depth case studies of partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs. Its Partnership Playbook synthesizes lessons learned from these case studies and provides step-by-step practical guidance for transit practitioners on how they should be considered and pursued.

The report provides an up-to-date guide on partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs in all stages of development and realization. It covers partnerships developed with several target markets in mind, including:

  • First/last-mile connections to transit;
  • Customers of ADA Paratransit and Demand-Response Services;
  • People traveling in lower density environments;
  • People with late night travel needs; and
  • People with occasional trip needs (e.g. guaranteed ride home).
