Estimated Percent of Total Driving by Lyft and Uber

Estimated Percent of Total Driving by Lyft and Uber

“Fehr & Peers was engaged by Lyft and Uber to determine their combined Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) in six metropolitan regions in September 2018 and compare that value to approximate total VMT in each area for the same period.”

Key findings

“ TNCs account for an estimated range of 1.0 - 2.9 percent of total VMT for the six metropolitan regions,while all other vehicle activity accounts for approximately 97 to 99 percent of total VMT.”

“Approximately one third of TNC vehicle miles are attributed to a driver waiting for a ride request, approximately 10 percent to a driver heading to pick up a passenger, and approximately half to when a passenger is in the vehicle.”

“Across all regions, travel by personal vehicle is estimated to be used for 68 to 82 percent of trips, travel by walking and biking is estimated to be between 14 and 21 percent of trips, and travel by transit is estimated to be between 3 and 7 percent of trips.”
