On Sunday, June 10, 173 trips and deliveries started simultaneously at 10:12pm GMT, resulting in Uber clocking over 10 billion completed trips.
These trips happened in more than 21 countries across five continents, in cities like Montreal, Mexico City and Miami. Latin America took the top spot for most simultaneous trips on a continent.
Also a few lucky eaters across five countries were munching on McDonald’s, noodles, sushi, burgers and tacos at the time. The shortest trip was an Uber Eats delivery, clocking in at just over half a mile, while the longest trip was a traveler taking a 41-mile ride to the airport in Denver. And five riders were on their first Uber trips ever.
Having started operations in 2010, Uber has expanded its operations globally at a rapid pace. Although it has been facing some stiff competition from its competitors off late, Uber still remains the premier ride-hailing platform in most parts of the world.
