In the summer of 2016, officials in D.C. estimated that ride-hailing apps may have surpassed taxicabs in trips for the first time, according to WAMU. Taxicab trips in Washington, D.C., dropped by 1.5 million at that time, dropping fare revenue by $13 million compared to the year before. Meanwhile, ride-hailing giant Uber continues to dominate since it launched in D.C. in late 2011. Since 2014, Uber has arranged approximately 86 percent of all app-based rides.

The Washington Post has now revealed what this year’s top destinations were for Uber. Listed in no particular order, see what was included in the D.C. area for the ride-hailing company:

According to the Washington Post, the above list excludes airports and transit hubs.

The only destination outside of D.C. proper is MGM National Harbor, the $1.4 billion mixed-use venue that opened in December 2016 with a casino, hotel, spa, theater, retail, and restaurants. The only university on the list is Georgetown University, which shouldn’t be surprising as it’s the only D.C. university without direct access to a Metro station.

What are your thoughts on the list? Surprised by any inclusions? Or confused as to why certain destinations didn’t make the top 10? Let Curbed DC know in the comments.
