Ridesharing in Pittsburgh

Where you’re going in Pittsburgh if you hail an Uber from CMU, Duquesne or Pitt

Unsurprisingly, top destinations from the three campuses are travel-related or are restaurants and bars.

If you’re on a college campus in Pittsburgh and requesting an Uber, you’re likely going out, going to a game or leaving town.

After announcing Uber Movement, a data resource of Uber trips around the world, Monday, the ride-sharing company released a set of more Pittsburgh-specific data to The Incline.

Uber provided the top 10 destinations that originated on the campuses of three universities in Pittsburgh for the last six months of 2016. Rides could have been hailed by students, faculty and staff or visitors.

The lists are not surprising. Everyone’s headed to the airport. All three lists include South Side bars and restaurants. PNC Park makes all three lists, and Heinz Field, home of the Pitt Panthers, as well as the Steelers, also makes Pitt’s list.

CMU’s list includes Target and Giant Eagle, topping the three lists for shopping excursions, though Duquesne rides often end up at the Ross Park Mall. CMU’s list also includes Uber’s Advanced Technology Center, not surprising given the connections between the two. And Duquesne is the only list that includes a healthcare destination. Check out the lists for yourself.
