Food was, not surprisingly, very resilient during this pandemic. In the case of Uber, food delivery became its biggest business (higher gross bookings than mobility). But mobility is coming back (first chart above) as our cities continue to reopen. In fact, Uber’s mobility business is probably a good proxy for our return to normal. Big and sudden drop in March 2020 and a longer climb back. You’ve seen this graphic before. We’re not fully back, yet, but we’re getting there. Based on this metric (mobility), it looks like we could get there by late summer or early fall in many cities.
The above slides were taken from Uber’s Q1-2021 earnings report.
