Quite possibly the most notable and newsworthy (for better or worse) digital company of the year was Uber. Over the years, the ride-sharing company experienced some pretty serious controversies, blunders and roadblocks, while continuing to grow and rack up funding.
With so much going on with Uber lately, I thought it may be a good time to take a quick look at user totals and other interesting Uber statistics. As always, I will be updating this post periodically, so be sure to bookmark and check back for new stats in the future.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Uber stats come from Uber’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
