Mobility Service Providers
Traffic congestion and gridlock plagues cities around the world, with millions of people migrating to urban centers. However, new mobility options are increasingly embraced by consumers, businesses and governments. The next revolution of mobility that incorporates mobile apps, journey/trip/route/mode planning, pay-as-you-go, and monthly subscription models, is called Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS).
The movement towards MaaS is fueled by numerous new mobility service providers such as ridesharing, car-sharing, e-hailing and on-demand "pop-up" shuttle services—combined with traditional modes of paid transportation. Several innovative startups and governments are rolling out MaaS in major cities globally.
While most drivers for mobility service providers are considered independent contractors (and not employees), this has been the subject of numerous lawsuits. In many cases, judges and juries are holding the parent company at-fault with high punitive damage awards.
With new service providers, and millions of new drivers entering the workforce, the need to keep pace with the mobility revolution requires the evolution of safety rules, policies and enforcement tools. Traditional transportation providers also have distracted driving issues as well as a need to become more MaaS & tech savvy—or they will be left behind.
