All about Mobility
What if the future of cars didn’t even include cars, or at least not owning cars? The mobility lifestyle is all about the alternatives to car ownership, knowing your mobility options, using emerging technology to connect and conserve, and pioneering new methods of sustainable transport. Included within the Mobility Lifestyle page on Ride, Ride News Now is a daily video update, bringing you everything you need to know about this fast-moving topic as it happens and as it changes.
People are realizing more and more that owning a car may not be necessary for the life they want to lead. Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft may’ve gotten the headlines, but they were just the beginning. Buses and trucks use natural gas to offer a greener option for public transit and shipping & delivery. Expanding the scope of the casual carpool are carsharing and rideshare programs that help people double up or triple up for greater efficiency. Car subscriptions let people only use what they need with the freedom to choose when. Electric scooters help people in densely populated areas practice micro-mobility on an individual scale. And don’t overlook human power! The mighty bicycle and bike sharing apps are going strong.
What’s coming up in the future? We might see high-speed rail using electric bullet trains…hyperloop technology to rocket us through tubes in our self-driving autonomous vehicles…flying cars and electric airlines…electric and hybrid cars in greater numbers…and alternatives that only exist today in our imagination.
