Boston Taxi ridership declining in 2015

Studies have shown that Boston taxi ridership has dropped 22 percent in the first half of this 2015, a massive decline that provides the strongest evidence to show the impact that the UBER and LYFT industry has had in the city.

From January to June, taxis in Boston reported some 1.5 million fewer passenger trips and took $33 million less in fares — a cut of 25 percent — compared with the same period last year, according to data collected by city regulators. The total number of trips fell to 5.3 million.
