Uber, Lyft, Via, and other services are changing the landscape of transportation by providing cheaper, easier access to a ride than ever before. They're also working to encourage people to share rides.

This is also creating new demand on curbside space, as many of these vehicles block travel lanes or bike lanes when pulling over to load and unload. In some neighborhoods, it's helpful to designate new drop-off and pick-up zones to serve people who want to share rides.
