Taxis Still Beating TNCs In New York City

Posted on July 13, 2016

While apps like Uber, Lyft, Juno, and Via are on the rise, NYC Taxi dispatches nearly 400,000 trips each day, according to new data out from Morgan Stanley. That's compared to 168,528 from Uber and 26,783 trips from Lyft every day. 

Via, which only offers shared rides with those headed in a similar direction and charges a flat rate, came in a solid fourth place behind taxis, Uber, and Lyft in all categories except one: the app solidly beats all other services when it comes to the average number of trips per vehicle per week.

    Value of medallions in NYC have dropped to the point where the companies financing medallion purchases are under stress. Why ride in a filthy hot cab when a nice new Toyota or Honda is available? Creative destruction at work.
