As a way to wrap your mind around the Uber experience, since it first ramped up, the global ridesharing company has released some interesting stats, from most requested drop off destinations, to driver and rider ratings.

“In six short months, Uber has helped New Yorkers earn money on their own schedules, move around their communities with ease, and for those who choose to drink, get home safely,” said Danielle Filson, Uber Spokesperson. “It has been an exciting ride and we look forward to the years to come.”
