-Michael Ransom- BYU professorHowever. As Mike Brown of Metro Analytics put it:
“BRT would be great, except for the fact that I am only using the BRT corridor for half of my trip. The rest of the trip involves to/from my house, which is a mile from the corridor, and the other end likewise is 3-4 miles off corridor.”'
Ride-sharing would certainly reduce the last-mile issue. Fewer people per vehicle, fewer detours, less delay per passenger. But that requires letting a stranger get into your car . Uber and Lyft have proven this can be overcome. But Uber-Pool has not been an enormous success. Which suggests that for most people, the financial benefits of car-pooling aren't worth the time-costs.
