QUANTITATIVE EFFECTS OF CARSHARING SERVICES ON COLLISIONS IN NEW YORK CITY
Using regression analysis on publicly available datasets, this research examines the effects of car-sharing services on collisions in three locations in New York City: the Financial District, Brooklyn, and JFK Airport, while controlling for weather effects and different types of cab services that operate in New York City. Prior studies have focused on the Central Business District, the core of central to lower Manhattan, which has a markedly different profile in terms of collisions and usage rates. In addition to finding both positive and negative statistically significant outcomes in different areas, this research further identifies a number of key areas for data to be collected or made available from both private and public stakeholders for future study in the field.
