With the end of the year approaching, the company has released its 2016 rider data, which shows one particular customers has taken almost 1,700 trips in 2016.
That so far, there are still a couple of days to go before 2017 is upon us. The exact figure is 1,688, Uber says in a statement. However, one customers in Bangalore, India, beats that by some distance with 3,135 journeys with Uber this year.
Back to Toronto, this is the first time the company has released year-end statistics for the Ontario city.

As for drivers, one operator in Toronto clocked 10,526 trips during 2016, not bad considering most Uber drivers work variable hours and are part time. In Canada’s most populated city, Uber’s busiest times of the day are between 11 p.m. and midnight.
