Market share of rideshare drivers U.S. 2019

In 2019, 54.28 percent of rideshare drivers in the United States drove for Uber, compared to only 21.22 percent who drove for Lyft.

Rideshare drivers

Ridesharing drivers are able to sign up for multiple services. When limited to the service they primarily drive for, Uber is dominant at 50.8 percent, compared to 19.9 percent for Lyft. In terms of the overall U.S. market, in August 2019, Uber held a market share of 71.1 percent compared to 27.2 percent for Lyft.

Industry growth

Assessing the performance of ridesharing companies in terms of zero-sum market share is somewhat misleading, as it does not indicate how expansion in the overall market has facilitated high growth for both Uber and Lyft. Both companies reported very strong revenue growth from 2017 to 2018, with Lyft’s revenue increasing by over 50 percent. This is likely a result of the increasing share of people using ridesharing services, which more than doubled between 2015 and 2018.
