Mobility on Demand – Collaboration in the future mobility eco system
Decreasing car ownership will further push Mobility on Demand (MoD) solutions. When asked, up to 40% of car owning consumers think that they will not own a car anymore by 2025. The need to be mobile will remain: hence the rise of MoD services, like GIG Car Share, Zipcar, electric scooter sharing, and bike-sharing, Lyft and Uber, which are a fixture and commonplace in cities worldwide.
Demand-responsive, private hire car providers are growing in popularity: customer connectivity, intelligent routing algorithms and a large pool of drivers, payment on account are the main attractions to consumers.
Ride-hailing is not the only on-demand model. Car marque’s services like BMW DriveNow attracts high interest as car-sharing scheme.
Dynamic Shuttle Services (Ride Pooling)
Dynamic shuttle services, also known as Demand Responsive Transit, like ViaVan, that combine elements of mass transit with dynamic routing, are growing.
Why is Mobility on Demand important?
The above 3 innovations are bound to rise and grow further with the advent of autonomous vehicles, which will be helped and supported by a further decline in (private) car ownership, particularity in (sub) urban areas.
