UBS: Unmanned taxis will make a competition to public transport


10/03/2017


With the advent of unmanned taxis on the roads, Uber-like services will compete not only with each other and with traditional taxis, but also with public transport. According to analysts at UBS, the distribution of unmanned taxis will reduce the travel expenses for passengers by 80%. Then, owning a car will be twice as expensive as using such "robotaxi".



According to the analysts of the Swiss bank UBS, unmanned taxis will completely change the entire system of public transport, and will lead to a significant decrease in the prices for trips in a taxi. According to a report released on Friday, unmanned taxis, the so-called robotaxi, may appear on the roads in the coming years. It's about services that work on the principle of Uber. Analysts believe that the distribution of unmanned taxis will reduce the cost of travel to them to the level of public transport tickets. "The transition to electric vehicles and unmanned vehicles coupled with increased competition can reduce the fees charged to passengers by 80% compared to today ... In the next few years, technology will make" robotaxi "a reality. In these new conditions, owning a car will cost almost twice as much as using "robotaxi", "the report says.

In September, it became known that Dubai taxi company Dubai Taxi Corporation is going to launch an unmanned taxi based on Tesla electric vehicles. Uber is already working on creating a network of unmanned taxis.

Another bank, Goldman Sachs, issued a report that by 2030 the market for mobile taxi ordering services, such as Uber, Lyft and Didi Chuxing, will grow eight-fold and reach $ 285 billion. Thus, if now mobile services have only third of the world's taxi market, then by 2030 such services will exceed the traditional taxi by five times.
