Earlier this year, Ford announced 25 mobility experiments. Some of these involved ride sharing. More information has been provided about a dynamic shuttle that is being proposed for the ride sharing market that will be tested with its employees in Michigan. Users would request a ride through an app. A premium mini-bus will collect and drop off passengers with similar routes. So, will Ford be competing with transit in a world where the lines of mobility are increasingly blurry?
