The Top Cities To Request Either Uber or Lyft

Ride-sharing is in, and so is hands-free entertainment. Whether you’re an Uber driver, a Lyft driver or a carefree passenger, planning your trips with a little fun can make all the difference. We feel anyone involved in ride-sharing should benefit from ProClip mounting solutions—as the humdrum of city traffic can get a little old.

So, which cities are most likely to see Uber and Lyft drivers? Fortunately for you, we’ve crunched the numbers.

The Most Popular Ride-Sharing Cities

According to Business Insider and EscapeHere, there are better cities to be an Uber driver than others. This data, accrued from several sources, isn’t necessarily contingent on population. Before we dig deeper, here are the most popular ride-sharing cities:

  1. Washington, D.C
  2. Boston
  3. San Francisco
  4. Seattle
  5. Atlanta
  6. New York City

Of course, population is still a consideration. More importantly, however, are the dynamics of traffic control, workflow and—well—jobs.

How Industry Affects Ride-Sharing

In general, cities with high degrees of law, corporate-level business and entertainment businesses tend to be healthy ride-sharing utopias. Why? Well, their beltways aren’t necessarily nice to nine-to-five drivers. Many business workers, if they’re not taking a tube ride, are using Uber and Lyft to get to—and from—work.

So, if you’re in Washington, D.C, Boston, Atlanta or these other cities, chances are you’ll have a great career as an Uber driver. Below, we’ve broken down the hourly wages of Uber and Lyft drivers in their respective “hotspot” cities:

  • San Francisco Uber drivers make more than Uber drivers in other cities, averaging about $23.17 per hour.
  • New York City Lyft drivers make more than Lyft drivers in other cities, averaging about $28.62 per hour.

Surprisingly, the highest wages don’t necessarily match up with the highest ride-share workers per capita. Regardless, the information is telling: If you want to work in the ride-share business, you’d better take a trip to the big city.

Bringing it All Together

At the end of the day, you’re most likely to grab a ride-share car quickly Washington D.C. or Boston. There are simply a lot of workers driving around, waiting to pick up passengers. If you find yourself in San Francisco or New York City, you’re still in luck, but your rates may be higher—due to the area’s pricing competition.

So, what do you think? Keeping your ProClip mount on hand isn’t so bad, assuming you’re only waiting a few minutes for a ride. If you’re a ride-share worker, of course, it’s another story. Take charge with ProClip, and give your riders some carefree entertainment while you keep your eyes where they belong: on the road.
