Additionally, according to Forbes, car-sharing companies Uber and Lyft are rapidly becoming the 800-pound gorillas of U.S. ground transportation for business travelers. And like any good pair of 800-pound gorillas, they continue to pound the opposition. In this case, it’s rental car providers and taxis taking the beating.
The study, based on analysis of some 50 million receipts showed that for 2017, the ride-hailing pair accounted for 68% of overall ground transportation expenses. Uber had 56% of all ground transportation receipts/expenses, a category that also included taxis and car rental services. Uber’s share grew slightly over 2016 when it had 52% of the market. However, the real market tiger in terms of growth was Lyft, which grew from 4% in 2016 to 12% in 2017.
This means the future of mobility consists of technology enabled, door-to-door, multi-model travel, encompassing pre-trip, in-trip and post-trip experiences. This enables business travelers convenience, time and cost savings, thus improving the customer journey experience.
