More about the companies:

UBER –has a more conservative demographic of users.  This is very likely because when they launched  Uber originally they were just a black car aka town car service. Then they launched UberX which is the program where everyday folks drive their cars and began to compete with competitor Lyft.  Uber operates in 160 cities globally and has raised about 4 billion dollars in investment cash.

LYFT – definitely has a more relaxed demographic of users. This is very likely because it’s logo is a pink mustache.  It’s an easy way to identify their army of cars around town. They’ve raised 1 billion dollars in investment cash and operate in about 70 cities across the US.
