Shared mobility is defined as the shared use of a vehicle, bicycle, scooter etc. It is an innovative business strategy that enables users to gain access to transportation. In addition to innovative transportation, new ways of delivering goods have been developed. Unlike ride sharing, the vehicle used in ride-hailing is not shared among multiple riders for each trip. The demand for shared mobility has grown greatly since climate change science became more widely understood. Also fueling growth in shared mobility are concerns over energy availability and the need for sustainable alternatives. Advances in wireless technologies have made sharing assets (like cars) easier and more efficient. New solutions have emerged including mobile apps designed to: plan alternate routes, fill empty seats, integrate real-time arrivals and departures information.
The Benefits of Shared Mobility
- Provide more transportation alternatives
- Reduce traffic congestion in cities
- Minimize pollution and carbon footprints from autos
- Reduce transportation costs
- Improve the efficiencies of auto use and costs
- Create mobility choices for those who can’t afford to buy and maintain a vehicle
- Develop mobility alternatives for those with limited driving abilities
- Create mobility choices for people who can’t obtain a driver’s license
The Shared Mobility Market
Mckinsey & Company (August, 2021) reported that the shared mobility market accounted for approximately $140 billion in global consumer spending in 2019. Out of this, ride-hailing accounted for the largest share, $120 billion to $130 billion, which is more than 90 percent of the total spent. Mckinsey estimates a shared mobility potential market of $300 billion to $500 billion globally by 2030. More than $100 billion has already been invested in shared mobility companies, mainly by venture capital and private-equity players. Self-driving taxis will likely become the next big thing in the ride share market due to lower operating costs compared to driver-based services. Mckinsey reported that 67 percent of global survey respondents said they use their private vehicles frequently (at least once per week). Private vehicles are still the primary mode of transportation used most in every country surveyed except Japan. Survey respondents said that their main reason for using shared mobility is convenience. Respondents indicated that the most important features of shared mobility services are safety, competitive pricing, and availability. Respondents indicated they were open to using self-driving taxis in the future. More than half the respondents indicated they would trade in their car in that scenario.
Shared Ownership - Reliable Rider Clubs
Reliable Rider Clubs provide shared mobility for people who want the Dollar Savings of Shared Ownership. Club members no longer want the liabilities of driving, auto ownership and maintenance for a variety of reasons. Reliable Rider Clubs are attractive to: senior citizens, people who cannot obtain a driver's license for any reason, people who want to opt out of the legal liabilities of driving, people who have medical issues or concerns that prevent them from driving, people who want to manage the risks of consuming alcohol at restaurants, bars, music and sporting events and people who value safety and security above all other considerations. With shared ownership the operating costs of transportation are divided by the number of members in the club and by the miles of transportation used by each member. Operating costs include: drivers, vehicles, insurance, fuel, service maintenance, repairs and administrative costs. Club members want safety, a competitive price, and availability. Reliable Rider Clubs (DBA’s) are motivated by cost-savings and operational-efficiencies for club members, rather than by profits generated for corporate shareholders and stakeholders. If this shared mobility and shared ownership model is interesting to you - register your interest.
Reliable Rider Clubs provide a host of benefits for their members. All applicants for club membership receive background checks of criminal history prior to having their membership approved. Applicants pay for their own background check ($75 non-refundable). Clubs will have no more than 30 to 60 members in their Members Only Ride Share System. Club members can book their ride pickup time and location and the destination location up to 90 days in advance. Other club members can share the same ride if their pickup location and destination location align with the route. Club members pay $250 per month for up to 250 miles of transportation in that month. If a club member uses more than 250 miles of transportation in any month, their credit card will be billed $1.50 per extra mile.
