In February 2017 ride-hailing apps generated 10 million rides in New York City, according to a new analysis of taxi data by Todd Schneider, reports Recode. That figure grew to 15 million rides a month for ride-hailing services by the end of 2017. In December 2017, the ride-hailing services Uber, Lyft, Gett, Via, and Juno combined picked up 65% more passengers than N.Y.C.’s yellow cabs ever did in a single month. As you might expect, Uber made up a majority of those rides, claiming 10 million of them. Lyft came in second with 2.5 million rides, while Gett, Via, and Juno shared the remaining 2.5 million.
