Ride- and car-sharing has fundamentally changed the way we think about transportation as part of our daily lives. These offerings provide a more affordable, efficient, and safe way for people to get around.
Ride sharing services provide real, tangible benefits for drivers, passengers, and the communities they serve.
- For passengers, ride sharing offers affordable prices, higher quality, and more reliable transportation choices – such as the option to carpool.
- For drivers, ride sharing offers a flexible option to earn supplemental income based on their schedule.
- And for the communities they serve, ride sharing services generate additional spending at local restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and more.
Ridesharing is especially beneficial to the elderly and other low or fixed-income populations that may not have their own vehicles or the ability to access public transportation.
The ridesharing industry prides itself on providing innovative products and inclusive services to consumers. Ridesharing platforms empowers deaf or hard of hearing drivers by giving them tools they can use to connect with riders. They also offer a safe alternative for getting home after a night out.
Peer-To-Peer Car Sharing
Peer-to-peer car sharing platforms offer consumers the ability to make extra money by sharing their personal vehicles with local drivers, tourists, and other neighbors who may be looking for alternatives to traditional car rentals. Peer-to-peer car sharing, which is mostly neighbor-to-neighbor renting, also creates an incentive to use vehicles more efficiently by providing new technology and financing models that make it easy for owners to rent their vehicle.
