Join us for a live video Q&A to discuss the future of the ride-hailing industry after Covid-19 with executives and founders from Asia, U.K. & Europe, and the U.S. We'll discuss how the industry will look 6/12/18+ months from now, how companies are managing the cataclysmic drop in ride and revenue, the impact on millions of drivers, and the metropolitan transportation trends that will re-emerge after the crisis peaks.
