The global alternate transportation market was valued at $206.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $620.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 11.6% from 2022 to 2031.

Alternate transportation is a service for commuting by using other means of transport than a car. Some well-known examples include public transportation, carpooling, walking, and biking. It can be availed by multiple passengers based on sharing basis. This service is often organized with many local branches, which are generally located near airports or busy areas in the city and are complemented by a website to allow online reservations. With the growth in pollution levels and population, the alternate transportation industry has experienced a drastic transformation over the past few years, becoming one of the most prominent industries in fleet transportation. The alternate transportation service providers primarily rely on cost-effective car rental schemes, such as leasing cars from their owners for years and then putting them for rent through app-based bookings. In addition, car rentals majorly help curb pollution by reducing volumetric sales of owned vehicles.

Alternate Transportation Market, Alternate Transportation Industry

Currently, the government in emerging and emerging economies is very concerned about the environment and conserving limited resources. Continuous research and development in technology to make such transportation means feasible in terms of implementation is another factor that will drive the future of this market. For instance, in 2022, the Indian government's automotive testing agency, iCAT (International Centre for Automotive Technology), signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Toyota to study and evaluate Toyota Mirai fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV).

The factors such as rise in trend of on-demand transportation services, increase in cost of vehicle ownership, and rise in in demand from online booking channels supplement the growth of the alternate transportation market. However, low rate of internet penetration in developing regions and resistance from local transport services, coupled with varying government regulations in different countries are the factors expected to hamper the growth of the alternate transportation industry. In addition, emergence of eco-friendly electric cab services and adoption of car rental management software creates market opportunities for the key players operating in the alternate transportation market.

Alternate Transportation Market by Type

The alternate transportation market is segmented into type, booking type, commute type, vehicle type and region. By type, the market is divided into sharing and renting. By booking type, it is fragmented into online and offline. By commute type, it is categorized into intracity and intercity. By vehicle type, it is further classified into cars, motorcycles, and others. By region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The leading players operating in the alternate transportation market are AECOM, AeroMobil, AeroVironment, Inc., Alternative Transportation Systems, LLC, Autel Robotics, Baidu, Inc., Carzonrent India Pvt Ltd., Delft Hyperloop, ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (OLA), Kespry, Blablacar, Lockheed Martin Corporation, NuTonomy, SpaceX, Tesla, Inc., Virgin Hyperloop, and Yuneec Holding Ltd.

Rise in trend of on-demand transportation services

On demand service includes taxi, passenger vehicle, and charter vehicles that provides flexibility and other features such as real time feedback, tracking of vehicle, and rating to end customers. The availability of the car and comparison of fare with the correspondent to on-demand transportation services is facilitated by numerous mobile applications. For instance, in May 2022, The Capital Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) launched a new on-demand transit service, CARTS to provide on-demand curb-to-curb rides that allow riders to travel anywhere quickly and reliably within the city limits. Moreover, such car rental service allows customers to make use of numerous functions. In addition, the facility to find exact location of customer, matching the demand with available supply are the factors that significantly drive the alternate transportation market.

Alternate Transportation Market by Booking Type

Rise in demand from online booking channels

Proficiency of booking through a mobile application and online websites has significantly attracted customers to prefer online booking services over offline booking, owing to the increase in in penetration of internet and smartphones across the world. In addition, online channels provide the information such as tracking the driver position, pre-estimated ride fare, driver contact, and vehicle details available within a smartphone app or website, which has further increased the customer preference toward online booking option. Moreover, owing to the online taxi booking channels, passengers can access various cab facility providers and book a cab, along with the co-passenger & driver information, live tracking, and cashless travel.

Furthermore, the rise in usage of digital money, such as digital wallet, different applications, net banking, and unified payment interface is anticipated to further fuel the growth of online booking service. Thus, this factor increases the demand from online booking channels such as website and smartphone, which in turn drives the alternate transportation market growth.   

Alternate Transportation Market by Commute Type

Low rate of internet penetration in developing regions

Generally, alternate transportation services require three parties for their operation i.e. driver, riders, and service providers. All the process such as matching rider with drivers, fare estimation & calculation, ride payment and reputation management are done by using smartphone with the mandatory internet connectivity. Some countries such as Eritrea, Burundi, Chad, Somalia, and others, have low penetration of internet that threaten the growth of the alternate transportation market in that region. The ride driver must have GPS equipped smartphone that has active internet connection to identify the exact pickup and drop location of customers. Therefore, this low penetration of internet hampers the alternate transportation industry globally.

Emergence of eco-friendly electric cab services

The players operating in the market are focusing on minimizing the carbon footprint of their business operations by adding electric cars to their taxi fleet. In addition, shift in consumer preference toward using sustainable mobility solutions for routine commute further supports the use of electric cab services. Moreover, the factors such as rise in government initiatives for the adoption of electric vehicles, increase in demand for emission-free vehicles, and stringent government regulations on carbon di-oxide (CO2) emission accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in alternate transportation services. Furthermore, various market players are collaborating with automobile manufacturers to expand their taxi fleet of electric cars for alternate transportation purposes. For instance, in September 2020, Uber partnered with Volkswagen to add more electric cars to its sharing services in Europe. Through this partnership, Uber will add new electric cars to its carpooling fleet in Germany. The company aims to offer 100% of its rides in electric cars by 2030 in major North American and European countries. Therefore, the adoption of electric cab services in alternate transportation offers lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
