GCC: Juniper Research: mobility-as-a-service revenues to exceed $11B by 2023, as regulation drives adoption

A new study from Juniper Research forecasts that revenues generated by the use of MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service) platforms, which integrate multi-modal transport services (including buses, taxis, rail and metro), will exceed $11 billion by 2023. This is up from an estimated $100 million in 2018 and reflects an average annual growth of 156%.

The new research, Mobility-as-a-Service: Emerging Opportunities, Vendor Strategies & Market Forecasts 2018-2023, found that increased regulatory pressures for joined-up, environmentally sustainable and financially affordable transport options resulted in the emergence of MaaS platforms, as demonstrated by Moovel and Whim.

It found that MaaS implementation will be further driven by the emerging focus on smart city initiatives. However, implementation of an open data policy is required immediately to realize this vision.

Juniper forecasts that the total number of MaaS users will reach 10 million by 2023, as pilots become compelling service offerings.

Alongside top-down push factors, user adoption will be further encouraged by cost-savings acting as a pull factor. Juniper forecasts that fuel cost savings from MaaS implementation will reach more than $32 billion in 2023, up from just $210 million in 2018. . . .

Lyft's $299/month All-Access service rolls out: Here's how it works
Lyft is counting on it being cheaper than owning a car
https://www.autoblog.com/2018/10/16/lyft-all-access-299-month/

Lyft's fledgling subscription service is no longer an experiment. The ridesharing company's All-Access Plan is now widely available in the U.S., potentially saving you money if you regularly hail cars to get from A to B. In its finished form, the plan has you paying $299 per month to get 30 'free' trips of any type worth up to $15 each (you pay the difference above that), with a 5 percent discount on additional journeys. You can sign up for the plan starting today, and it should be available to every American customer by the end of the week.

That's a gigantic amount to pay per month, but Lyft is wagering that it's ultimately less expensive than owning and maintaining a car. You might save as much as 59 percent a month, it claimed. You're also at the mercy of availability, but that won't necessarily be an issue if you live in a major urban area and would otherwise have to grapple with fuel, parking and repair costs.

The company positions this as part of its quest to reduce the need for personal car ownership and a way of freeing you from driving. . . .
