The ‘ride share’ market has been growing ever so steadily since the advent of taxi services like Uber, Lyft back in 2009. The market was initially slow to pick up, but by 2014, Uber and other similar ventures had begun to collect a revenue stream of more than $17 billion annually. Demand for moving and transportation has never stopped, and as the world population continues to rise, it is quite obvious that a new global transportation model needs to be slowly adopted all across the planet (so as to not only protect essential resources, but also to reduce issues related to traffic).
Why Is Car Sharing Being Touted As The Future Of Transport?
According to many studies conducted across the globe, the masses seem to be favoring the Uber model of transportation, over conventional taxi services. This is made evident by the fact that there are now many Uber like operations that have garnered market attention all across the world ( for example: Didi Kuaidi of China, Grab Taxi of Singapore, Ola of India)
Some of the key aspects which make Car Sharing appealing to customers include:
- Lesser regulatory laws than conventional taxi services
- Allows for direct interaction between customers and drivers (thereby eliminating the need for intermediaries).
- Helps create more jobs
