In September of this year, along with Bellhop and The Rideshare Guy, we organized the largest rider rideshare survey to date! With over 1,000 total respondents answering a variety of questions across rideshare habits, spend, impact, and future technologies we gained valuable insights into how we, as a society, view rideshares.
