Tinuku Ride-sharing saves costs $10 billion in four major cities in Indonesia

AlphaBeta conducted a survey for the study in four cities are Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, and Bali.

The study of urban mobility in Indonesia and the role of joint mobility services suggest ride sharing has the potential to reduce 46,000 hectares of land currently used as parking lots in 33 cities in Indonesia.

Ride sharing also provides economic opportunities to 7 million Indonesians by 2020. AlphaBeta found the fastest growth in Indonesia in the next 15 years in medium cities such as Pekanbaru, Palembang, Semarang, and Makassar.

If there is no ride sharing service is predicted to provide additional travel time of 1.9 minutes for every 100,000 people in a city.

While the current burden reaches Rp498 trillion (US$37.5 billion) and in 2020 is expected to increase 41 percent to Rp703 trillion (US$53 billion).

The adoption of the use of ride sharing can save 71 million vehicle trips in Indonesia by 2020. Currently Uber Indonesia has UberPool service and Grab Indonesia has GrabHitch for ride sahring.

AlphaBeta Director Fraser Thompson said joint mobility or ride sharing could cut travel costs by up to Rp138 trillion (US$10 billion).
