The more i read and study the more i sense revenue-neutrality in ReimagineRTS as a major shortcoming. For one or two years, the constraint matters less, but for three and more years hence, revenues vary with political vicissitudes, legislation, and budgets. Flat revenue becomes an unrealistic assumption. We should instead take this exemplar from Indianapolis or from other cities, and forecast the changes we need to make. As the adage goes, the best way to predict the future is to create it.

Before making final recommendations for its Downtown Parking Study, Rochester ought wait for New York to permit ridesharing services to gain traction and understand their effects on parking demand, especially on lots and garages near or attached to business hotels. The large effect size reflects a massive shift in the market for rental car parking, and could handily ease a garage capacity crunch.

I'm sure the Rose Fellows would also find this study useful.

Of course, determining how to license rideshares is a separate issue.

This article hits me with deja vu as it echoes statements and links i've posted over the past 7 months about venture philanthropy. I had before read none of the articles listed within, but they come to remarkably similar summaries. I've added a handful to my reading lists and plan to read a dozen more, to better survey the landscape. I'm sure this background will come strategic as organizations i help venture ahead.
