I’m curious how many car-sharing services US markets can ultimately support. Zipcar + Car2go are entrenched. Zipcar is the leader in car sharing, an alternative to car rental and car ownership.
However, I found out the hard way that car ownership beats the heck outta car sharing. So disappointed with Zipcar customer service. Now car sharing network zips all over the world, a car sharing network is now available in every major city across the country.
But what about the people who are not into car sharing but rather use ride-hailing services like Uber or Lyft in America. Do scientists think about data sharing: be disruptive. Gypsy Cab drivers are a thing of the past. I once complained about Uber before, people told me "just delete it," or use Lyft. It's not that simple to choose from Lyft (or Uber). Maybe because Uber and Lyft make sure the people who drive for them aren’t employees, or compensated fairly? If people commit crimes while driving for Uber or Lyft, they must want to get caught.
Black market ride sharing has begun.
Those with cars now have immense power over those without, due to groundbreaking car sharing companies like TURO. I thought they weren't allowed to operate in Austin Texas anymore by law? What's the reason? it might just be a case of a multi-million dollar corporation wanting to make it's own rules and throwing a fit when they can't. How a Texas-sized fight over laws regulating Uber, Lyft might play out: Whether or not the next Texas Legislature passes.
No hitchhiking sanctuary in Austin, illegal and enforced, which leaves GetMe/taxis to AUS or Lyft/Uber to get around, or walking/biking/driving. No more Lyft or Uber in Austin! Not everyone can afford to own a car and those yellow cabs are not affordable. Shouldn't "Ride sharing" refer to hitchhiking or car pooling? I think that the Uber/Lyft debate is really"Ride selling?"
Turo, because Turo is a trending on-demand car sharing application that offers a million dollars in liability policy, and also cover all damage to your vehicle while being rented. Renters don't have to notify their insurance company for any damage claims. I have discovered that the difference between car sharing and ride sharing is a that car sharing involves members to actual drive a vehicle. The ride sharing concept is all about being driven which is a great way to prevent drunk driving...you're better than that! Save some lives and get a Yellow Cab, Uber, or Lyft! You've got plenty of choices. #BeSafe
