The future of ride sharing is here. Uber and Lyft have laid out their vision for the next decade, and it’s an ambitious one. They both want to own the full spectrum of transportation options—not just cars but also scooters, buses, bicycles, and even flying taxis. Their goal is to make getting around easier than ever before, whether you’re in urban or rural areas. As a result, whether you live in a sprawling metropolis or simply hate driving yourself around town (or anywhere), there will soon be more opportunities than ever before for you to get from A to B without ever leaving your couch or having to deal with traffic jams on the highway.”
Uber and Lyft, the two kings of ride sharing, have laid out their plans for the future.
Uber and Lyft, the two kings of ride sharing, have laid out their plans for the future. Uber has invested heavily in self-driving cars and wants to launch a fleet of them by 2021. Lyft is also investing in autonomous vehicles but hasn’t yet announced any specific plans for when they’ll be available on its platform.
Both companies are also looking at ways to expand beyond just getting people from point A to point B: Uber’s Jump program allows users to rent electric bikes or scooters from within its app; Lyft recently purchased Motivate Bike Share (the company behind Citi Bike in New York City) so it can offer its own bike-sharing service sometime next year; both companies have also been developing new modes of transportation like carpooling services that let riders split costs with other passengers heading along similar routes or flying taxis that take off like helicopters but land like planes–though neither has made any announcements about when these might hit the road (or sky).
The companies are working on self-driving cars.
The companies are working on self-driving cars, and both Lyft and Uber are testing their versions in real-world conditions. The vehicles will be available within the next few years.
They’re also working on expanding their services to include other travel modes, like scooters and buses.
The future of ride sharing, according to Uber and Lyft’s head of product
Uber and Lyft are investing in other transportation modes.
Lyft recently announced that it would invest $100 million over the next three years in a new initiative called “Lime Access,” which will give riders access to scooters through their app. The company also plans to offer buses as an option for certain routes as well as bike-sharing services like Jump Bikes. Uber has already been experimenting with this sort of strategy: Last year, it partnered with bus service Moovit so that users could use Uber Pool or Express POOL rides (which cost less than regular POOLs) from Moovit’s app instead of Google Maps; then earlier this year, Uber introduced shared bikes through its main app–but only users who live near one of these cities can take advantage of these services at present time because they’re still limited geographically.
And they’re both investing in new ways for you to get around without driving yourself.
Uber and Lyft are investing in the future of transportation. They’re both working on self-driving cars, which will allow you to get around without having to drive yourself.
Uber is also experimenting with flying taxis, which would travel at 200 miles per hour and be able to carry multiple passengers at once–like an airborne Uber Pool.
Lyft is partnering with NASA on a project called “Vessel” that aims to use drones as delivery vehicles for people who need medical supplies quickly but can’t get out of their homes easily because they live in rural areas or are disabled (this could also help reduce carbon emissions).
Ride sharing is about to become much more convenient for everyone.
With the advent of self-driving cars, ride sharing is about to become much more convenient for everyone.
The companies are working on self-driving cars, which will make it possible for people who don’t own their own vehicles to take advantage of ride sharing services. In addition to making transportation easier and cheaper for those who have limited access to cars or other forms of transportation, autonomous vehicles will also reduce traffic accidents caused by human error.
Uber and Lyft are also expanding their services beyond just personal vehicles. They’re investing in new ways for you to get around without driving yourself–like scooters and buses–as well as developing partnerships with car manufacturers like Ford (NYSE:F) and Volvo (OTCPK:VOLAF).
Ride sharing is changing the way we get around, and it’s only getting better. Uber and Lyft are working on new ways to make their services more convenient for everyone, including those who don’t have access to a car or prefer not to drive themselves. These companies have come a long way since their founding in 2009, but they still have plenty of opportunities left as they continue on their journey towards becoming the future of transportation services worldwide!
