Watch: Uber and Lyft Used 3.5 Times More Than Taxi Services in Seattle

According to a new data report, rideshare companies Uber and Lyft are used 3.5 times more often than Taxi services in the Seattle area. Market research firm Nielsen surveyed close to 3,000 people in Seattle from September 2016 to August 2017. About 247,000 people (8.3%) used at least one of the app-based services.

Only 2.4% of Seattle-area adults say they’ve used a Taxi service in the last week, which could spell trouble for taxi services if they can’t adapt. But Seattle isn’t the only one. In a city ranking, Seattle is 13th out of 50 that are dependant on ridesharing.
