Many people see a very linear situation with transportation and automobiles. If you need a car buy one, if you need a taxi hail one. Mobile technology has completely altered the way we experience transportation to and from work, however. We use an app to pay, not to hail a taxi, but to hail another individual that gives rides for a few extra bucks that happened to be passing by! More and more consumers are freeing their selves of their auto financing payments by doing this. The modern consumer has spoken, and he prefers ride sharing apps over traditional taxi cabs.
Ride sharing apps have allowed consumers to sell each other lifts in the most convenient and economical of ways. Companies such as Carcoin have developed an entire blockchain service around this concept. Not only will such a blockchain handle the monetary end, but it will handle the logistics end too! The blockchain will even track the number of times a driver decelerated or accelerated too abruptly! Such advancements take ride sharing technology to a whole new level of excitement.
In the past, if a consumer lived in a more remote area, buying a car was the only option. Ride sharing brings a level of taxi traffic to smaller areas that rivals some medium sized cities even! This is simply not the case anymore. More consumers than ever before can opt for ride sharing services instead of financing a car when it comes to commuting.
News reports where drivers for some of these services have committed crimes or victimized people are often over sensationalized. If a ride share driver were unstable, somebody early on would spot this. It either becomes a part of that driver’s next review for everybody else to see or a part of the perpetual blockchain record with the previously discussed technology. Careful examination of these instances shows that they are very rare, and extremely isolated in nature. The ten o’clock news can sometimes generate the impression that app drivers are waiting to mug or murder you! Things would simply not function the way they do were this the case.
Ride share apps aren’t only for those people that are looking for a ride. People that would like to earn a little extra money can become part of the driving craze. Driving somebody a few streets over to the grocery store is certainly a better source of self-earned income than most part time side jobs. This could be why the popularity of it has grown such a great deal over the past decade.
The last thing to consider about sharing a ride is the effect that it will have on the environment. This effect would be much preferred over the effect of everybody on your street having their very own car with no passengers in tout. As more and more cars become fully electric, ride share apps will probably offer much more cost-effective rides as well. This is because fossil fuels will no longer be a cost concern for those consumers that are providing the service.
