Accuracy in Media

This is no laughing matter:

Uber serves low-income and minority neighborhoods more than three times the rate of yellow taxicabs in New York City, according to a report released by the Manhattan Institute.

The report, “Uber-Positive: The Ride-Share Firm Expands Transportation Options in Low-Income New York,” evaluated ride data of yellow taxis compared to Uber X, the company’s lowest-cost option, to see which neighborhoods in New York they serviced most.

The report found that only 6 percent of yellow-taxi pickups were in lower-income neighborhoods such as the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Uber X picked up in those neighborhoods more than three times that of taxis, as their percentage of pickups outside Manhattan was 22 percent.
