Shared Mobility Has Yet to Reach Mainstream Adoption
Companies such as Uber and Lyft have reached billion-dollar valuations based on the promise that shared mobility services will play a major part in the future of transportation. Based on data from Statista’s Global Consumer Survey 2018, the following chart examines how big a role ride-, bike- and car-sharing services play in present-day America.
According to our survey of more than 2,000 U.S. adults, shared mobility services have yet to become a mass phenomenon. Just 17.5 percent of the respondents claim to have used a short-distance ride-sharing service (e.g. Uber) in the past 12 months, with long-distance ride-sharing, bike- and car-sharing seeing even lower adoption rates.
In general our results indicate that many people still rely on ticket machines (public transportation) or the old-fashioned wave (taxi) to get from A to B these days. Online bookings of traditional transportation services aren’t particularly common, and nearly half of the respondents haven’t booked any transportation service online in the prior 12 months.
