This report is a digital collection of every Uber stat I have curated over the years. Updated for early 2020.

Quite possibly the most notable and newsworthy (for better or worse) digital company of recent years has been 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 and a sizable initial public offering in the rearview, I thought it may be a good time to take a quick look at Uber user totals and other interesting Uber statistics and facts. I hope you find all of this Uber data helpful and, as mentioned earlier, be sure to check back often for updates.
