the autonomous economy
Since the AppStore launch in July 2008 there has been an undeniable shift in the way that businesses work with their customers. Almost everything that can be done with an App is already out there or is coming soon. Within the transportation sector we have already seen a huge shift in economics as commuters are choosing to leave their vehicles at home and get to their destinations via a ride-share provider. As this trend continues it will build more consumer confidence and trust as they become even more reliable, efficient and cheaper. When ridesharing Apps couple with Autonomous vehicles we will see another huge shift in consumer behavior. When this happens car ownership will be legitimately challenged and our transportation infrastructure in the dense urban core will change dramatically as we enter the Autonomous Economy.
