October 29, 2020 MTI Research Snaps presents "How Prepared Is Transit for a Cyber Attack?"

10-10:30a.m. (PDT)

Ransomware, data breaches, phishing incidents and other cyber threats are on the rise, including among public transit agencies. Such threats leave the transportation sector—one of 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose disruption would have a debilitating effect on our nation’s security—in a vulnerable position. Decision makers need to be prepared to upgrade, patch, and secure transit systems to ensure that this essential service remains safe and operational. Yet new MTI research found that only 60% of transit agencies have many of the basic policies or personnel in place to respond to a cyber incident. In recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness month, MTI researchers will discuss this critical research and the policy recommendations needed to understand, mitigate, and respond to cyber threats.

December 3, 2020 MTI Research Snaps presents "Will Ride-hailing Enhance Mobility for Older Adults?"  -  San José, CA

This study explored the potential for ride-hailing services like Lyft and Uber to help meet the travel needs of older Californians. Using data from a survey of almost 3,000 Californians 55 and over, we analyzed how many older Californians have used ride-hailing, how they booked trips, what concerns they have about ride-hailing services, and their interest in potential new options for how to book and pay for trips.
