Uber Creates Restaurant Guide Based On Trip Data
The mobile taxi service has built a new recommendation platform for big cities based on where riders set as their destination
Want to have your cake and eat it too? Enter big data dining. That’s right, Uber is now using passenger data to help customers find the most popular eateries in the area with their Uber Restaurant Guide.
Essentially the guide is a curated list of dining spots in cities such as Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Nashville, Los Angeles and New York City, incorporating popular, up-and-coming, brunch spots and date night picks. The restaurants tend to be quite pricey, since people who can afford to Uber to restaurants can afford expensive dining. As more data is processed, the service will likely expand to more cities in the months to come.
