Uber's Dominance

Date: 20 OCT 2016posted by Car Rentaledited by WinX

Expense management supplier Certify analyzed more than 10 million business traveler receipts and expenses during Q3 reports Uber accounted for 48 percent of ground transportation transactions. To be fair, one Uber receipt equates to one one-way trip while a car rental will represent many more. Taxis on the other hand made up of 12 percent of ground transportation transactions processed by Certify. Ride-sharing rival Lyft makes up for 4 percent of the market. While the numbers do add up with ride-sharing apps owning over 50 percent of the receipts, car rentals are still a lucrative business since their 36 percent represents a higher charge per receipt. Here's how corporate ground transportation market share broken down in seven major US cities in Q3.
