Share post:


Kolkata: As 2022 winds to a close, Uber on Monday released its annual analysis- How India Ubered in 2022 – a glimpse of how India moved this year.

The analysis from trips in 2022 revealed some very interesting trends about cities with the highest number of trips, the total number of kilometers covered in Uber trips, popular travel trends in intercity travel, the city with the most late-night trips, and also several rider preferences. Backed by rider insights and data, the report shares insights on the increasing importance of ridesharing within the country and efforts to create sustainable cities for the future, according to media statement.

The year 2022 saw Indians start traveling big again, and cities swinging back open for business after the pandemic. Uber trips during the year covered as many as 4.5 billion kilometers, which is the distance from Earth all the way to Neptune, the last planet in the solar system since Pluto got kicked out of the team.

The most popular product in terms of number of trips was Uber Go, with Uber Auto coming in a very close second – showing the growing preference for App commute, for vehicles typically hailed off the roads earlier.

The cities with the highest number of Uber trips in 2022 are Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Kolkata, in that order. While Delhi-NCR did have the overall highest number of trips,

it also had the highest number of office-hour trips, going to show how Delhiites and their immediate neighbors in Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad chose to make their way back to work from office.

Uber launched operations in several new cities during the year, including being the first ridesharing company to have presence in all seven Northeast sister states.

Uber is now present in 123 cities in India, spread across all corners of the country. In terms of the debutant cities, Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh emerged as the newcomer city with the highest number of trips, showing proof of the love received by Uber there.
