Uber’s Website Traffic Data is Impressive

TipRanks’ Website Traffic Tool, which uses data from SEMrush Holdings (SEMR), the world’s biggest website usage monitoring service, offers insight into Uber’s performance this quarter.

Meanwhile, the Uber website recorded a 122.03% monthly rise in global visits in June, compared to the same period last year. Also, year-to-date, Uber website traffic increased by 79.91%, compared to the previous year.

As a result, the company’s increasing website traffic hints at encouraging results for the second quarter.

What is Driving This Rise in Uber Website Traffic?

Uber’s recently announced move to launch a new charter bus service in the two Texas cities of Dallas and Houston is perhaps driving its website growth.

Notably, the feature was launched in partnership with U.S. Coachways and aims to connect large groups of people traveling over long distances. Moreover, Uber has plans to launch this feature in additional cities.
