At a $17B+ valuation (and growing), Uber has quite the target on its back. We've highlighted 27 companies that are gunning to be the next great Uber alternative.
Uber has found itself in hot water again and its even prompted the #deleteuber hashtag. Many have debated if this bad PR will cause customers to move away from the on-demand car titan or if the service is just too widely used for a mass exodus and this crisis is relegated to tech folks who will forget it in a few days.
With that in mind, we decided to use CB Insights data to find worldwide alternatives for Uber that have raised money since 2013. Below you’ll find a range of companies including Uber’s arch nemesis, Lyft, as well as early-stage companies like Turkey’s BiTaksi.
