Cities that work together on transportation regulation can benefit from an exchange of ideas and experiences as well as increased bargaining power when negotiating with companies.
Build a regulatory toolkit
A compendium of case studies, data agreements, model codes, negotiation strategies, and regulatory roll-out plans can help cities figure out how to address the challenges posed by the ride-sharing industry. Making these and other materials readily available can help city leaders teach and learn from their peers.
Establish a learning network
Cities face similar regulatory challenges and can learn a great deal from one another’s experiences. A learning network provides a way to formalize and routinize this exchange of information and insights so that all can benefit, particularly smaller cities. This community of practice can bolster member cities’ bargaining power by establishing common priorities and approaches to regulatory design and implementation.
