Widespread popularity of TNC services has significantly changed the realm of urban transportation. This study presents an empirical investigation of the impact of TNC services on the other conventional modes in megacity Dhaka, the capital of the developing country Bangladesh. For this study, multinomial logit models have been developed using data collected from household travel survey. The no TNC scenario information has been collected by asking the respondents about their preferred mode for a similar kind of trip in a no TNC scenario when a trip made by TNC has been found. This study has found that TNC services are drawing passengers mostly from the CNGs. The finding is actually similar to several other researchers who concluded that TNCs are actually competing with taxi services in the cities of the first world countries. Considering the nature of these CNG vehicles, they can be compared to the taxi services of the first world countries. This study has also found comparatively higher impact of TNCs on public transit than many other studies.
