Unlocking Cities: The impact of ridesharing across India
Explosive growth in population has put significant strain on Indian transport infrastructure. Major Indian cities are constantly ranked among the world’s most congested. Ridesharing has introduced a new mode of transport to commuters. It has the potential to be a vital part of the solution to India’s transportation needs and can reduce up to 33%-68% of private cars and congestion by 17%-31% across biggest cities. Uber has commissioned the Boston Consulting Group to assess the potential benefits that greater adoption of ridesharing may bring. Realizing these benefits would depend on collaboration between the rideshare ecosystem and the public sector.
