What is the average trip distance for an Uber or Lyft Ride?
The Guru Take
Varies by location, but an average trip is considered to be about 6 miles in US.
An average distance for an Uber ride (and this should be applicable to other rideshare services) is about 5~7 miles per trip.
As you can see from the research by SherpaShare (source), the distance varies by city as well. In a city like Dallas where the locations are spread out, the trips are usually longer.
There is also a trend that the average distance is getting longer, and this is most likely attributed to the fact that rideshares are becoming more common in suburbs where people tend to take longer rides.
