Introducing Ride: Kelley Blue Book’s New Resource for Educating Consumers on Their Mobility Options

May 14, 2019

Kelley Blue Book today unveiled Ride, an all-new website built to help educate and empower consumers about the technology that is rapidly transforming the movement of people and goods today and in the future.

Kelley Blue Book is the most-used third-party site by car shoppers with the majority of consumers visiting during the car-buying process1. Ride extends Kelley Blue Book’s award-winning editorial content and trusted reputation with an added focus on forward-thinking topics, including everything from ride-hailing, car-sharing, car subscription and micro-mobility to electric vehicles (EV), advanced driver-assistance systems, self-driving technology and flying cars.

The demand for alternative mobility solutions is already building. One-third of consumers say they are open to new transportation methods, rather than owning their vehicle, according to the 2018 Cox Automotive Evolution of Mobility Study.
