Could Ford be the next Uber?

Ford is piloting an “Uber” concept called Dynamic Shuttle Service which will provide on-demand ride sharing to its employees.

If on-demand ride sharing becomes truly ubiquitous, well…most Americans won’t need a car , which I imagine will make Ford very sad unless…they become the ride-sharing platform of the future. 

When you think about it, Ford could (in theory) step in and provide the “hardware” and inftrastucture needed so that Americans won’t need to own a car. So perhaps in a few years instead of grabbing an Uber you’ll grab a “Ford” which will bring a self-driving car/van right to you and take you anywhere you need to go.

I wonder what we’re gonna do with all the parking lots in the future?

Things that make you say “hmmmm”

Happy Motoring!
