Uber Takes the Passing Lane: Disruptive Competition and Taxi-Livery Service Regulations

Allison Schneider
2015 Elements  
for modernization. in order to capitalize on this transformative moment, cities and governments must rethink and address decades-old rules, regulations, and entrenched interests.  ...  The advent of Uber and similar entities that have moved the ride-sharing concept into the 21st century provide that unique chance in the public transportation arena.  ...  Both the passenger and driver know the economics before the ride begins as it is calculated based on time, distance (provided by GPS), and demand (a so-called dynamic pricing model). 11 tential riders  ...

Anomalous supply shortages from dynamic pricing in on-demand mobility [article]

Malte Schröder, David-Maximilian Storch, Philip Marszal, Marc Timme
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Combining game theory and time series analysis of dynamic pricing data from on-demand ride-hailing services, we explain this apparent contradiction.  ...  By disentangling different timescales in price time series of ride-hailing services at 137 locations across the globe, we identify characteristic patterns in the price dynamics reflecting these anomalous  ...  RESULTS Dynamic pricing schemes in mobility services are commonly applied by on-demand mobility service providers, such as Lyft and Uber [15, 16] .  ...

Sharing Anxiety Is in the Driver's Seat: Analyzing User Acceptance of Dynamic Ridepooling and Its Implications for Shared Autonomous Mobility

Sigma Dolins, Helena Strömberg, Yale Z. Wong, MariAnne Karlsson
2021 Sustainability  
Yet, few agencies have prioritised designing an AV system that focuses on dynamic ridepooling, and there remains a gap in the understanding of what makes people willing to share their rides.  ...  Four focus groups (19 participants in total) were held in New South Wales with active users of either the trialled on-demand dynamic ridepooling service (Keoride) or commercial ridepooling (UberPool).  ...  Sincere thanks to Jillian Fernandez for feedback and moral support.  ...
