Google in Mobility Report
The first in-depth investigation of whether, how and when Google will take over the urban mobility market.
Alphabet operates one of the most widely used mapping services in the world. It has been making inroads into the urban multi-modal mobility space for some time, being the first map maker to provide a decent coverage of transit / public transport options. It was also the first to directly integrate Uber rides in trip planning and to provide bicycle navigation.
With a global reach of 4 billion travellers, an R&D budget of $30 billion and ownership of 2 of the strongest mobility apps —Google Maps and Waze— no company is better positioned in this space than Google.
In fact, most urban mobility stakeholders, including Public Transport Operators (PTOs), already rely on Google Maps.
So the question is not whether Google could be the dominant force in urban mobility. It is already.
The questions are: Where will they stop? Will they be the first to offer Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) on a large scale? What will be the impact on PTOs, cities, other Mobility Service Providers (MSPs) and MaaS platform providers?
This exclusive research is answering them.
