A Joint Model of Experience and Frequency of Use of Solo and Pooled Ride-Hailing Services in Dallas, Texas

The current study develops a multi-dimensional model of ride-hailing adoption and frequency considering both solo and pooled rides. The results show that, from a behavioral perspective, a service-based transportation future where people predominantly travel using hailed pooled rides instead of their own vehicles is probably still distant. Average treatment effects show that, in isolation, each variable has only a marginal effect on the adoption of pooled ride-hailing. Thus, a complex combination of actions is required to promote the use of these services. Among these actions, the authors identified the need for campaigns to (a) increase technology awareness among older individuals and individuals from lower income households, and (b) reduce privacy-sensitivity among non-Hispanic Whites. However, such efforts would still need to be complemented by a decrease in service fares and an increase in urban density.
