The two sides of ground transportation disruption
Legacy ground transportation has truly been disrupted in just the past few years.
Companies like Uber, Lyft, Hailo, Sidecar and Gett, alongside Indian startup Olacabs and Didi Dache in China and dozens of others are competing head-on with traditional taxi and limo business.
These companies are almost exclusively going after the highly lucrative on-demand market, taking care of customers who need a ride, and need it now.
The ease of use of well-designed apps, ubiquity of smart phones and highly competitive pricing is slowly, but very surely, going to change the on-demand taxi business on a global basis forever.
