Lyft, the rideshare company, is beginning to see an “uptick” in business travel, according to Brian Roberts, CFO, speaking on a third quarter earnings call. Noting that it’s still early in that recovery, he said the company expects that this trend will become more pronounced as more companies return to the office. Roberts said one interesting data point is that airport rides reached 8.5% of total rideshare rides in the quarter. Going back two years, he said, airport rides were 9.1% of total rides in the third quarter of 2019. While leisure has been strong, he said, some of these airport rides actually represent the beginning of corporate travel. Noting that a return to the office was postponed by a summer rise in cases of COVID-19, Roberts said that situation was especially pronounced in cities like San Francisco, which is only 40% recovered. But, he added, he is “willing to bet San Francisco will regain its former glory.” He said that kind of recovery “will be a tailwind to help drive volume next year,” adding, “it's really a matter of when, not if.” The company expects, said Roberts, that revenue growth for the full year 2022 will exceed the rate of growth for 2021.
