Uber And Lyft Sliced Boston Taxi Trips by 46% Between Pre-Launch February 2013 And February 2016

Lyft launched in Boston in May 2013. UberX followed soon after.

I use December 2012 through February 2013 as the base three-month period before the launch of Uber and Lyft for taxi trips and passenger revenue. In that period there were 3,376,326 trips and $64,061,956 in revenue.

After three years, the Boston taxi business has been cut in half.

During the three months between December 2015 and February 2016 there were 1,815,358 trips and $37,165,451 in revenue.

Since the entry of Uber and Lyft into the market:

Boston Taxi Trips are down 46%

Boston Taxi Revenue is down 42%

As of December 9, 2016 I have been unable to obtain industry metrics for the March 2016 through November 2016 time period.
