  9. 9. 2. Theory coursetake.com 9
  10. 10. Theory | On Demand Economy • An On-Demand Economy is defined as the economic activity created by technology companies that fulfill consumer demand via the immediate provisioning of goods and services. • Uber is one such company that pioneered the concept of the On-Demand Economy. • Uber is a platform that connects riders to independent drivers (“driver partners”) who are nearby, all done via the Uber mobile app. coursetake.com 10
  11. 11. Theory | Uber Business Model • Riders open the Uber app to see the availability of rides and the price and can then choose to request a ride. If a rider chooses to request a ride, the app calculates the fare based on time and distance traveled and bills the rider electronically. • Uber divides the fare, usually 80% to the driver and 20% to Uber. • Payment is secure because riders pay only via credit card using Uber app. • In the Uber context, Demand is measured via Riders or Passengers, while Supply is measured via Drivers or Driver Partners. coursetake.com 11
  12. 12. Theory | Uber Metrics Lets understand some basic terminology around Uber. This will help us answer some of the multiple choice answers at ease. • App Openings (Eyeballs) – The number of customers who launch the Uber app looking for vehicles. • App openings is a good measure of demand (more later). • Zeroes – The number of customers who open the app and see no Uber cars in the area. • Requests – The number of customers who make requests for an Uber car. • Completed Trip – The point from when a customer is picked up and dropped off successfully. • Completion Rate – The percentage of requests to the completed trips. coursetake.com 12
  13. 13. Theory | Uber Metrics • Driver Supply – Number of drivers on the road unoccupied. • ETA/Wait Time – The time a customer has to wait to be picked up by a driver. • Idle Time – The amount of time a driver has to wait between trips. • Peak Time – When demand is extremely high. • Working Shift/Work Day – The work shift for a driver. Usually 8 – 10 hours. coursetake.com 13
  14. 14. Theory | Surge Pricing • In the event that there are relatively more riders than driver partners such that the availability of driver partners is limited and the wait time for a ride is high or no rides are available, Uber employs a “surge pricing” algorithm to equilibrate supply and demand. • The algorithm assigns a simple “multiplier” that multiplies the standard fare in order to derive the “surged” fare. The surge multiplier is presented to a rider in the app, and the rider must acknowledge the higher price before a request is sent to nearby drivers. coursetake.com 14
  15. 15. Theory | Surge Pricing (Continued) • Why Surge Pricing? • Driver partners are free to work whenever they want and must be incentivized to provide services. Under these conditions, economic theory tells us that using prices to signal to riders that rides are scarce and inducing driver partners to forgo other activities will close the gap between supply and demand and lead to improved outcomes for both riders (as a whole) and driver partners. • The first beneficial effect of surge is to increase the number of driver partners in the area. Surge signals that this is a valuable time to be on the road. • This increase in driver partner supply is also a net win for riders in the area because more of them are able to take advantage of Uber services. coursetake.com 15
  16. 16. Theory | Surge Pricing – Net Effect • App openings are a good representation of those who are in the market for Uber’s services and thus provide a nice measure of demand. • During Surge Pricing, the number of app openings increase a lot. • The second effect of surge pricing is to allocate rides to those that value them most. • While the number of app openings increases dramatically, the number of actual requests doesn’t increase by as much. This comes from riders who open the app, see the surge pricing is in effect and decide to take an alternate form of transportation or chose to wait for surge pricing to end. • Most of the increase in prices was passed on to driver partners, who benefited from the increased demand. coursetake.com 16
  17. 17. Theory | Surge Pricing – Net Effect • Completion Rate (percentage of requested rides that end in a completed trip) doesn’t change. • Surge filters out those riders only who value Uber. • Surge brings out more drivers onto the road. • Both these effects equalize supply and demand. • Wait Times/ETAs do not increase with Surge. • Not only did everybody that wanted an Uber ride (at the market clearing price) get allocated one, but this allocation happened within a short amount of time. coursetake.com 17
  18. 18. Theory | No Surge Pricing When Demand is High • What happens when Demand is high (via a number of app openings) and NO surge kicks in. • In the absence of surge pricing, we might expect the gap between supply and demand to be large. • Requests go up dramatically and then they drop drastically. • The ETAs increase dramatically. • Completion rates decrease dramatically. • The entire marketplace fails from an economic perspective causing a large difference in demand and supply. coursetake.com 18
