A survey done by the travel expense software provider Certify, has looked into the business and services that business travelers rely on the most. They found that ridesharing in general and specifically Uber, is doing incredibly well.
There’s been a three percent increase in ridesharing usage since the last quarter, bringing the total to 52 percent. That means that Uber, Lyft, and the like, are officially being used more than taxis and other options. Amazingly, Uber is making up 48 percent of that total, while Lyft is doing four.
Certify CEO, Robert Neveu, spoke about the findings in a press release.
“Of all the disruptive technologies to come out of the sharing economy over the past several years, nothing has captured the interest of businesspeople or captured more headlines in the media than Uber and global rise of ride hailing.
“Tracking at 52 percent of the ground transportation total in the third quarter, it’s remarkable to see that ride hailing is now more frequently expensed by business travelers than taxi and car rental combined, and more popular than taxi at anytime during the three years Certify has been reporting on this data.”
