We'll have a discussion about ride hailing companies and how they are impacting transportation and life in the Bay Area. In 2016, San Francisco had the third worst traffic congestion in the nation.

According to the San Francisco Examiner, nearly 45,000 Uber and Lyft drivers are now working in the city. What are the solutions to the Bay Area’s increased congestion? What changes are you seeing?
