TaaS stock refers to a financial asset sold by a public company in the transportation as a service field. Before we look into some examples, let’s explain what the industry revolves around. TaaS is a new mindset. It involves relying on a third party to solve your transportation needs. It can mean taking a rented vehicle, hiring a taxi/public transportation alternative, and much more.
According to O.P. Agarwal, World Bank and chairman of the Transportation Research Board Committee on Transport in Developing Countries, trends like telecommuting, e-commerce, and online shopping might change the way in which we perceive urban transportation. These trends are likely to change the nature of traditional car ownership while creating a larger market for TaaS companies.
The projected growth of TaaS stock value in the next 12 months is solid, and the current prices are comparatively low, which might just signify the right time to buy. Still, it’s not just about buying TaaS stock or not. It’s also about finding the right TaaS companies to invest in.
