We estimate total benefits with and without Uber in differentperiods and then take the difference.• estimate a transport mode choice model of SF travelers under the 2016-2017transportation market environment (with Uber/Lyft services);• calibrate the choice model to replicate the 2008-2009 market outcomes beforethe existence of Uber services; and• run counterfactual simulations to estimate benefits without Uber and thencompare those benefits with the estimated benefits with Uber available.• Benefits of ride-hailing services to SF Bay ...
