Personally, I’m very interested in the modal choice decisions for trips to the emergency room. Since the introduction of ride-sharing services, ambulance use has fallen by 7%. However, Uber and Lyft say that their service is best used in non-emergency situations, and encourage people to call 911 when appropriate. Undeniably, this decision to utilize a ride-sharing service is largely influenced by the price of an ambulance, which could be over a thousand dollars. Other factors would include wait times and the perceived urgency of one’s medical situation. In providing more options for non-emergency medical transportation, new mobility services can be extremely beneficial for travelers looking to save hundreds of dollars.
