Uber Use Really Goes Up During Rush Hour in Chicago

CHICAGO — Taking an Uber during rush hour is such a Chicago thing.

The popular ride-hailing service released analysis Tuesday from six different cities showing how people in each of those people use the service.

New York City, San Francisco and Chicago all have similar Uber habits, with a high number of rides between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. on weekdays, then again between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Judging from the brightness of colors, Uber is a more popular option for morning commutes in Chicago than in New York or San Francisco.

Chicago is also different from Miami, Los Angeles and London, three cities where Uber usage is light on weekday mornings. Looking at Uber's analysis alone, it's hard to figure out when people get to work in these cities.

All six cities do have one thing in common though: After midnight on Sunday tends to be peak time for Uber rides every week.
