The Ride Sharing segment covers online platforms and apps that bring together passengers and drivers. It includes so-called Transportation Network Companies that offer rides in private passenger cars. Thereby the passenger requests a ride and will then be matched with a driver. Uber and Lyft are examples of such companies that match passengers with drivers and charge a commission for this service.

Carpooling services like BlaBlaCar are considered too. These platforms and apps charge a commission for helping people going the same way to organize carpools using private vehicles.

Furthermore, taxi companies that let users book rides through an app (e.g. myTaxi) are included. Both the booking and payment process, however, need to be carried out through a digital channel.

Booking or purchasing, respectively, can be carried out from both a desktop PC and a mobile device (smartphones and tablets). The existence of an online checkout process on the respective booking page is a mandatory requirement. The revenue in this case represents the entire booking volume. Not included in the definition are car sharing services that enable users to rent cars that they drive themselves (station-based or free-floating).
