Visualizing Uber Rides

Recently, I discovered that I had set up my IFTTT account to log all of my Uber rides to a Google Sheets workbook. News to me! After some investigation, I found about six months of Uber ride data, nicely categorized with time, location, and driver data for each trip. If you’re looking to do any sort of analysis, or are interested in tracking your Uber rides, I highly recommend this IFTTT applet!

I couldn’t resist doing some rough analysis on the data just to see the overall trends - take a peek at the charts below to see what six months of rides in DC looks like!
