It has been a year since Uber and Lyft brought their ride-hailing services to the Buffalo Niagara market.
Looking back on their first year, the two companies have shared some statistics.
Drivers have picked up passengers visiting from more than 100 countries, with one Uber driver clocking the longest trip at 423 miles from the Buffalo Airport to the JFK Airport in New York City.
But the most common drop-off destinations for Uber were located a bit closer.
- Buffalo Niagara International Airport
- Greyhound bus station, 181 Ellicott St.
- Falley Allen, 204 Allen St.
- Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino, 1 Fulton St.
- Ellicott Complex, University at Buffalo North Campus in Amherst
- Walden Galleria in Cheektowaga
- Hyatt Regency Buffalo, 2 Fountain Plaza
- HarborCenter, 100 Washington St.
- Westin Buffalo, 250 Delaware Ave.
- Mulligan’s Brick Bar, 229 Allen St.
Lyft's list of top destination has a lot of overlap, but also includes SUNY Buffalo State, KeyBank Center and Buffalo RiverWorks.
Lyft has official community ride-share partnerships with University at Buffalo Athletics, Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association, Buffalo RiverWorks, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Live Nation at Darien Lake.
Lyft also expanded the trial phase of its All-Access monthly subscription plan to include Buffalo as a test market.
