App-based ridesharing program being tested in business district

According to the City’s website, a 90-day pilot app-based ride-sharing program was launched on June 1 in partnership with established providers Lyft and Uber, as well as with the city’s taxi services.

This pilot program is being used to compile data and statistics relevant to designated Transportation Network Company’s (TNC) pick-up and drop-off locations in the Downtown Business District. This trial period will look to implement a “5-Minute App Based Rideshare Parking Only” program between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. of every day.”

If the pilot program is a success, it would need final City Council approval to become an official ordinance.

Keep an eye out for the green signs in the downtown district. You can download the staff report here (pdf). Questions can be directed to Traffic and Engineering at 714-738-6899. For specifics on pick-up and drop-off zones, as well as potential traffic adjustments, please see the map below.
