Uber Is Serving New York’s Outer Boroughs More Than Taxis Are | FiveThirtyEight

Interesting stuff!


"…the data we’ve analyzed shows that Uber has a point when it claims that it is doing a better job than taxis in serving the boroughs of New York City outside of Manhattan. Of the 4.4 million Uber rides for which the data shows a pickup location, 22 percent started outside of Manhattan, compared with just 14 percent of the 88.4 million yellow and green taxi rides."
