Uber, available in over 60 countries, has revealed its most popular destinations for 2019.  

Riders love to use Uber when traveling, with The Empire State Building once again reigns supreme as the most frequently Ubered-to tourist attraction, with Disneyland and the Louvre gaining traction. While none of SA's attraction featured, we did however make the list as the 15th most popular country for international US Uber rides. 

The US ride-sharing App has been super busy this year too, adding public transit to its Uber app, as well as launching electric bikes and scooters across the world - these are not yet available in South Africa. The company also took a small step towards sustainability with opt-in utensils on Uber Eats.
