By facilitating a more convenient and on-demand form of transport and delivery, Uber helps save time, expand mobility, create new business for restaurants and the hospitality industry, and provide flexible earning opportunities for thousands of driver and delivery partners in Sri Lanka.
In 2021, Uber unlocked an estimated Rs.81 billion in economic value for the Sri Lankan economy. This includes both the impact of earnings of driver-, delivery- and restaurant-partners facilitated by Uber, and the wider indirect and induced multiplier effect created throughout the company’s wider supply chain.
According to Sri Lankan riders, ridesharing is the most significant transport innovation they have experienced in the last decade, and more impactful to them than any new transportation infrastructure project.
In total, in 2021 we estimate that this increased flexibility is worth an estimated Rs. 1.2 billion to driver and delivery-partners.
