Uber is in 24 new markets, 205 cities, 45 countries, 6 continents

Quick to deflect attention from its Lyft-sabotage controversy, Uber has moved into 24 new markets in the United States. The cities range from the podunk town of Bloomington, Indiana, to the college town of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. In its blog post announcing the news, Uber threw out some frothy statistics: since it’s in 100 cities in the States, Uber said it now covers 55 percent of the U.S. population. It has also moved into ten cities in India and six cities in China, 205 cities globally, 45 countries, and six continents. To Antarctica, the company merely says “bring it!”
