Comparison Of Ride Sharing Service Models

4 min read

Introduction

The ride sharing market is growing fast. There are many players in the game and each one has their own model, but how do they compare?

The Lyft Line (carpooling) service is similar to UberPOOL in that it allows you to share your ride with other people going the same direction at a discounted rate. But unlike UberPOOL, where you have no control over who those passengers might be (and may end up with someone you don’t get along well with), Lyft Line allows riders to choose their own co-passengers based on age and gender preferences. This can make rides feel more comfortable and less awkward than taking an UberPOOL where there’s no guarantee that anyone else will be as nice as you are!

Lyft

Lyft is a ride-sharing service that allows you to request a ride from the Lyft app. You can also use it to pay for your trip and rate your driver.

In addition to being available in more than 300 cities in the US, Lyft is also available in more than 60 countries worldwide. It has a community of drivers and passengers who work together to make sure each other’s experiences are positive ones!

Uber

Uber is a ride-sharing service that allows users to request a car through their smartphone app. Uber offers lower fares than Lyft and other services, but you can only use the app in certain cities.

If you’re looking for convenience and price, Uber may be right for you!

Lyft Line (carpooling)

Lyft Line is a carpooling service, meaning that at least two passengers are required for a ride. The Lyft app will match you with other riders who are going in the same direction as you and notify them of your location. If they accept the offer, then both parties can share the cost of their trip!

Lyft Line also allows users to request a regular Lyft ride if they don’t want to wait for another passenger or would rather not split costs with someone else.

UberPOOL

UberPOOL is a carpooling service that allows you to share your ride with other passengers going in the same direction. The fare will be lower than an UberX ride, but you may have to wait longer for it because there’s no guarantee that you’ll find another passenger who wants to share their ride with you.

UberPOOL is not available everywhere yet; if yours isn’t one of those places where UberPOOL has rolled out yet (like mine), then forget about this option!

Lyft Shared Rides

Lyft Shared Rides allows you to share your ride with other passengers traveling along a similar route. This feature is available in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.

To use Lyft Shared Rides:

  • Open the Lyft app on your smartphone and select “Shared” from the side menu (or tap ‘Set Pick-Up Location’ and then tap ‘Shared’). You’ll see an option for “Request A Ride” where you’d normally enter your destination address; just below that are options for choosing between Lyft Plus or Pool rides (if those options are available). If there aren’t any drivers nearby who accept shared rides, then you’ll be prompted to wait until one becomes available–no guarantees here!

The ride-sharing market is growing fast, but these services have different models that make them unique.

The ride-sharing market is growing fast, but these services have different models that make them unique.

  • Lyft Line is a carpooling service. Riders who select the Lyft Line option are matched with other passengers going in the same direction and are charged a lower rate than they would be for an individual ride.
  • Lyft Shared Rides is a ride-sharing service where drivers pick up multiple passengers along their route and drop them off at separate destinations. Riders pay only for their portion of the trip (as opposed to paying for an entire trip). UberPOOL provides similar functionality as Lyft Shared Rides–drivers pick up multiple riders along their routes, but unlike its competitor’s service, UberPOOL does not require riders to share seats or travel together; instead it simply directs people toward one another so that each passenger pays only for his or her portion of travel time before being dropped off at his or her destination

Conclusion

The ride-sharing market is growing fast, but these services have different models that make them unique. Lyft Line (carpooling) and UberPOOL are both cheaper than regular Lyft or Uber rides, but they also take longer because they require more stops. The shared-ride options from both companies could be a good option for those who want to save money and reduce traffic congestion by getting more people into fewer cars at the same time.
