Abstract
Abstract I conduct a literature review of academic articles surrounding ride-hailing to attempt to glean in-sights about these platforms. I present multiple papers around topics such as two-sided markets, mul-ti-homing and dynamic platform competition. I show that the literature, both theoretical and empiri-cal, surrounding these topics indeed gives us tools to analyze not only single ride-hailing platforms, but also the industry itself. I use these methods to produce insights from a local and temporal market case study.
