The Role of Rideshare in Bringing Back Downtowns

Since the spring and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, downtown areas across the country have seen mass exoduses and a reduction in foot traffic from residents who did stay. So, how do cities bring visitors back to downtown to shop, eat and support local businesses?

In the latest episode of Roads, Rails & Rides, host Jeb Morris sat down with Jesse Landry, Owner of RYDE Enterprises, an operator of a Texas-based ride sharing company, to look at ways to encourage locals and tourists to move more freely in the city.

Morris and Landry touched on:

  • If companies like Morris’s are seeing a promising level of ridership from the general public
  • If there’s been a resumption in the interest of public tours
  • The shift in how people are using services like Morris’s and how that might impact the future of ridesharing
