Tuesday, 02/01/2024 | 06:53 UTC-5

Update in January 2024, several ride-sharing and taxi services operate in the United States. Prices can vary based on factors such as location, demand, and specific services offered.

Here are six well-known ride-sharing and taxi companies that were prominent as of my last update:

  1. Uber: One of the most popular and widely used ride-sharing platforms, offering a range of services, including UberX, UberPOOL, and Uber Black. 
    Uber Technologies, Inc., commonly referred to as Uber, provides ride-hailing services, food delivery, and freight transport. The company is headquartered in San Francisco and operates in approximately 70 countries and 10,500 cities worldwide. The company has over 131 million monthly active users and 6 million active drivers and couriers worldwide and facilitates an average of 25 million trips per day. It has facilitated 42 billion trips since its inception in 2010 and is the largest ridesharing company in the United States.

  2. Lyft: Another major player in the ride-sharing industry, Lyft provides various ride options, including standard Lyft rides, Lyft XL for larger groups, and Lux for a more premium experience.
    Lyft, Inc. is an American company offering mobility as a service, ride-hailing, vehicles for hire, motorized scooters, a bicycle-sharing system, rental cars, and food delivery in the United States and select cities in Canada. Lyft sets fares, which vary using a dynamic pricing model based on local supply and demand at the time of the booking and are quoted to the customer in advance, and receives a commission from each booking. Lyft is the second-largest ridesharing company in the United States after Uber.

  5. Gett: Initially known for its black car service, Gett offers a variety of ride options and operates in multiple cities, providing competitive pricing. 

    GetTaxi was founded by Israeli entrepreneurs Shahar Waiser and Roi More. In the summer of 2009, Waiser came up with the idea during a thirty-minute wait for a taxi to the airport in Palo Alto, California. GetTaxi's beta version in Hebrew started operating in Tel Aviv two years later, in the summer of 2011, and the service was launched in London in August 2011.

    In March 2012, GetTaxi branched out to Moscow, and opened its first United States offices in New York City. In May 2016, the Volkswagen Group invested $300 million in Gett.

    In 2017 Gett acquired Juno, a ride-hailing company primarily operating in New York City. Gett sold Juno in November 2019 in an agreement with Lyft, that saw Gett form a partnership with Lyft.

    Gett’s marketplace model saw further partnerships with Ola in 2020, and Curb Mobility in 2021
