Ride-sharing: A potential means to increase the quality and availability of motorised trips while discouraging private motor ownership in developing cities?

Research in Transportation Economics, 2018, vol. 69, issue C, 607-614

Abstract: Ride-sharing, although much older than many may think, has recently made a comeback through internet and smartphone (hailing) technology. The literature does not provide consensus regarding the (dis)benefits of ride-sharing. Furthermore, the limited number of studies identified are examples from the developed world, which are not necessarily transferable to the developing world context.
