Jennifer Clark, associate professor in the School of Public Policy at Georgia Institute of Technology, was quoted in the WABE, October 6, article “Uber to Launch ‘Uber Movement’ in Atlanta.” The School of Public Policy is part of the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.

Excerpt:

Uber trip data is of minimal value to city planners because it’s not representative of overall traffic patterns, Clark added. Urban planners also seek granular data on regular commutes to work, school and grocery stores. “Uber vehicle data may not be the first and best data for that purpose,” Clark said.
