Uber: Delhi NCR ranks among the top 10 global trips market for Uber in September

Must read

Ride sharing company Uber has announced that Delhi NCR ranks amongst its top 10 markets globally based on the number of trips taken in the month of September. Delhi is the only Indian city to make it to the top 10, with residents taking more than 1 million rides each week.
As Delhi residents resume travel after the lengthy lockdown, Uber data reveals that cars have emerged as the most preferred mode of commuting, followed closely by low-cost commuting modes like autos and motorcycles. Another interesting rider trend points to an increase in longer distance trips, with the busiest hours weekly being 8 AM – 10 AM. Additionally, not only do Delhiites kick-start their week with an Uber ride, they also end it with one as Mondays and Fridays are the busiest days of the week for drivers.
Prabhjeet Singh, President, Uber India and South Asia, said, “We are thrilled to see Delhi as one of Uber’s top 10 global markets in terms of number of trips in the month of September, which underscores India’s important role as a contributor to Uber’s business growth. As people start travelling again, we are seeing green shoots of recovery in the capital which further underscores the promising potential of Delhi and India.’’
Earlier this month, Uber also announced that its popular and affordable Uber Auto service is recovering briskly, with cities like Delhi rebounding to almost 80% of pre-COVID levels, followed by Jaipur and Chandigarh recovering to 50%. As regular life resumes in cities and rider demand increases, Uber is prioritizing low cost products, like Auto and Moto, to lead growth for its mobility business.
