Interesting numbers. I’m assuming the scooter rides are in Asia?

Also, obviously anecdotal, but I use uber often in a lot of places (work prefers over cabs). Recently used Lyft for personal use because I had a coupon. The two cars that picked me up were POS. I was worried that one wouldn’t make it. Could be local to Bham but it was bad.

Uber is the household name. They've coined the ride sharing term "I'm Uber'ing". I say it even when I use Lyft. Kind of like Kleenex.

That being said, every single driver I've spoke with prefers driving for Lyft.

I think they'll both be around for a long time.

While Uber has the lead overall, Lyft s definitely carving out niche space in the healthcare world. I’m seeing it firsthand and there will be networks of transportation for couriers for patients getting medical care.

Just they opened at 72 a share. Both companies are losing money, so I am feeling bearish on them.

don't have an opinion on these two companies but "I'm not Investing in these two companies because they're not profitable today" is very short-sighted

Seems most drivers are running for both around here. They tell me many customers do the same. They check price on each and select accordingly,

Lyft hit here first. I used them, so they often send me discounts. Kinda stick with them because of that. Uber probably is the first in most markets and gets that same connection to the customers there.

Maybe buy both when available. Sort of like Sirius and XM. Great idea, but who will win? Bet on both and wait for the merge,

Well I think that's highly dependent on how long you plan on holding.

If you're thinking short term (1-2 years) trying to make a quick return, you could very well be right.

If you're thinking long term (10-15 years and beyond), which is how I'm looking at it, I think at least one of them will be the dominant force in transportation.

Amazon still isn't profitable 20+ years later and they've made plenty of people rich.

I think investing in companies like this you need to look far down the line if you have that kind of time.
