Monthly users of Uber's ride-sharing app worldwide 2016-2019

In 2018, 95 million people used the Uber app on a monthly basis. Uber is one of the most popular ridesharing apps in the world. Based in San Francisco, their global net revenue amounted to 11.3 billion U.S. dollars. Contributing to their revenue is the 5.23 billion rides that were delivered via the Uber app in that year. In the fourth quarter of 2018, Uber generated almost 14.2 billion U.S. dollars in gross bookings worldwide.

U.S ridesharing market

The ridesharing market has experienced a giant surge in the past couple years. The ridesharing market allows for consumers in need of a ride to instantly call for one via their smartphone and GPS satellites. This is comparable to a taxi service but is significantly cheaper. However, drivers for these apps do not hold the same licensing requirements as taxi drivers. Uber and Lyft are the two largest companies in this sector. In October 2018, Uber had 69 percent of the market, while Lyft only had 29 percent. In 2018, residents of San Francisco spent on average 110 U.S. dollars per month on Uber, compared to 89 U.S. dollars on Lyft. Consumers who made more than 75,000 U.S. dollars per year made up 53 percent of the total users who used ridesharing services as of October 2018.
