On an earnings call Thursday, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said, “The Covid crisis has moved delivery from a luxury to a utility.” He believes Uber users will continue to order food and other items through Uber delivery services even after the pandemic subsides, and stay-at-home orders are lifted.
He also said that the ride-hailing business was recovering at different rates in different parts of the world. Khosrowshahi said, “When cities move again so does Uber.” Rides were down 50% to 85% in top U.S. markets during the second quarter, he said, but in top European markets, including France, Spain and Germany, rides were only down about 35% year-over-year.
