With the average cost of car ownership topping $9,000 a year, and with traffic congestion and air pollution high on the list of urban problems, the time is right for ridesharing technologies, said Greg Griffin, associate researcher for the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.

Prices of the services vary widely. Some connect commuters for carpooling, with costs ranging from nothing to a few dollars per trip. Others provide rental cars for short rides across town, similar to Fort Worth Bike Sharing, for a flat fee. Newcomer firms Uber and Lyft, which use phone apps to connect users to a network of drivers for hire, sometimes cost more than a cab. But as a whole, ridesharing services are almost always cheaper than maintaining and operating privately owned cars, Griffin said.
"We're just at the beginning of this curve," he said. "Because ridesharing is more reliant on software and information technology than on infrastructure, these technologies are evolving rapidly. One barrier to ridesharing is the convenience of car ownership. Even if it makes sense for someone to use one of these programs, it takes time for people to realize they may not need their car."
Griffin said that two programs, Ride2Go and Carma, are starting to make measurable changes to traffic congestion and air quality in cities like Austin. His group is collecting data on the subject and plans to publish the findings soon.
Griffin said the Transportation Institute hasn't found any studies on crime connected to ridesharing, but his guess is that it does keep some people from using such services.
