Uber Canada Nightlife Index Reveals Canada’s #1 Partying City

Uber Canada has released its annual Nightlife Index, a report showing stats based around nighttime trends in various Canadian cities. This year’s report hightlights the top 10 partying cities and those induldging in late night snacks.

The Uber Canada Nightlife Index pulls from both Uber Rides and Uber Eats data. For many of the following categories, the company uses data based around volume. Aside from rides taken at night and during specific holidays, the Nightlife Index also offers insights into which foods are most popular to cure a hangover and the most popular and unexpected non-food orders.

Uber Canada also reminds Canadians the importance of not driving under the substance. In a continued partnership with MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), Uber Canada wants to support Canadians with rides to ensure safe arrival home. Also, having an option to order food is vital to avoid having to get behind the wheel while under the influence.

“While enjoying your city’s nightlife, we want to remind you not to drive impaired. Plan ahead, call a friend, have a designated driver, stay overnight, find a ride with the Uber app, or take transit to get home safely,” said Dawn Regan, Chief Operating Officer for MADD Canada.
