Carpool on Demand: Ad-Hoc vs. App Battles
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) technology leaders Uber, Lyft, and Waze, despite huge financial investments, have been unable to win over some commuters in key urban areas like San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Houston. The hold-outs have adopted much older, no-to-low tech solutions like Casual Carpool (with an estimated 6,000 passengers daily), RideFlag, and some now-defunct solutions. RideFlag plans to extend its offerings with real-time scheduling soon and Waze is countering with a proprietary carpooling app.
