    Why is gross revenue per ride expected to go up in 2018? Is Uber planning to raise its rates?

      Hmm, good question. Or I guess people could be taking longer more expensive rides?  Or askewed growth with more expensive cities?  I don't know.

    Wait what?  Number of Rides per User is 50?  Once every week?  for EVERYONE?  That seems high.

    I guess it must consider only active users. I wonder how that is defined.
