2 percent of users call an Uber or Lyft almost every day-down from 3 percent in 2015.

According to a new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, just 36 percent of American adults say they have used ride-hailing services. Sixty-one percent say they have heard of the services but hadn't taken a ride. The remaining 3 percent said they hadn't heard of them at all.

That comports, mostly, with other surveys conducted in the past year about Uber and Lyft ridership, which have found that between 24.4 and 43 percent of the US population has used apps to summon ride.

A new survey also found that few riders aren't making ride-hail services part of their daily routines, which is less great news for the long-term growth of these companies, both set for initial public offerings this year.

Americans' interactions with the ride-hailing services depend, unsurprisingly, on who they are, where they live, how old they are, and how much they make. More than half of 18- to 29-year-olds have used Uber, Lyft, and their like, but just 24 percent of those over 50 have. Fifty-five percent of college grads have hailed an Uber or Lyft, but 20 percent of those with high school degrees or less have gotten into the services. While 53 percent of those with household incomes over $75,000 have hitched ride-hail rides, less than a quarter of those making less than $30,000 have done the same. And high-income urban dwellers are way more likely to have hopped aboard than high-income people living in rural areas-71 percent compared to 32 percent.

Daily ridership is probably falling as prices rise.

Which isn't a surprise to me, i kinda predicted that the demand will slump back to pre-uber numbers overall once uber starts operating at a profit.
