Take me out to the ballgame: PNC Park tops Uber, Lyft lists for 2017
Ride-sharing services Lyft and Uber are great for getting you home safely from the bar or Downtown without having to worry about parking.
But they are also great for data and lists and learning what the most popular sandwich in Pittsburgh is.
( It's the McChicken , remember?)
Uber and Lyft on Wednesday unveiled their most-visited places in 2017.
The top Uber destination in Pennsylvania was PNC Park, edging out the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Let's Go Bucs!
The top Uber destinations in Pittsburgh in 2017, excluding the airport, bus and train stations and hotels, were:
1. PNC Park
2. Tequila Cowboy
3. Mario's Southside Saloon
4. Heinz Field
5. Stage AE
6. Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh
7. Carson City Saloon
8. Carnegie Mellon University
9. Duquesne University
10. PPG Paints Arena
Tequila Cowboy took home the Lyftie Award as the most-visited bar in Pittsburgh in 2017 by Lyft. Sienna Mercato won the Lyftie for most-visited restaurant. PNC was the most-visited event venue for Lyft, and Carnegie Mellon University was the most-visited university. Market Square took home the “Only in Pittsburgh” Lyftie Award. Spirit won the Lyftie Award for top trending destination.
Uber noted that the most popular time to take an Uber nationwide was on Saturday nights at 11 p.m. I wonder why. And the busiest day for Uber was Oct. 28, the Saturday before Halloween. Again, I wonder why.
Another interesting Uber fact — well, two. One, they have Uber in Alaska, and two, the most popular destination in Alaska is the Moose's Tooth Pub and Pizza in Anchorage. Say that 10 times fast.
