User is a service that allows you to get access to taxis and other type of transportation very easily, and as such it has become one of the most popular tools in this regard. And even if there are numerous complains that come from numerous users that the app developers aren’t supporting the app that good and provide it with the necessary functionality, this tool has still become one of the most important ones in the transportation industry. In fact, it’s so popular that Uber is actually getting around 70% and up to 80% sometimes from all the transportation related applications in the US.
And while in the US Uber can be considered a leader of the transportation apps, in other regions of the world it still has a lot to learn in this regard. But since the apps and the smartphones are shifting their looks and targets continually, Uber is still trying to progress at a rapid pace, mainly because people always look for something new and better other than keeping the same service all the time, as that might be a nuisance for them.
In the US, Uber is followed by Lyft and after that Sidecar, but these two companies fail to bring the immense success the Uber seems to have. In fact, between these there seems to be a major dent which is definitely unfortunate, considering the fact that both apps are great and have quite a following. However, Uber statistics seem to show quite a decrease in recent years, while the other, aforementioned products are increasing steadily. Lyft has manage to raise around 332 million, while Sidecar has also raised 35 million on its own. And even if this might not be the best results that the companies have provided, it’s safe to say that both of them have a lot of potential and they will soon remove the Uber monopoly from the transport app market.
Both Uber and Lyft have a 400% growth in recent years, although the latter seems to have that increased in the last few months, especially after the summer, which is quite interesting and amazing to say the least.
The main idea here is that while Uber is still being the best in this field of work, its number have declined quite a lot and we will soon be able to assist a new rise of the transportation apps. If Uber doesn’t improve its apps quickly and provides better services to the public, then the numbers will drop even further for sure.
