Business travelers feel ‘nervous’ about ridesharing

Despite a rise in the use of ridesharing services, business travellers report feeling safer in taxis.

A recent survey shows business travellers around the world feel marginally safer in traditional taxis than they do in ridesharing services such as Uber or Lyft.

The research, commissioned by Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), found half of respondents are worried about their safety in subway and train stations, followed by walking (42 per cent), ridesharing services and buses (39 per cent each), taxis (36 per cent) and trains (35 per cent).

This is compared to airports (34 per cent), aeroplanes (31 per cent), restaurants (30 per cent) and hotels (27 per cent).
