2017's Top Destinations for Business Travelers

This year, more business travelers than ever buckled into the passenger seat of a Lyft ride to get to airports, client events, and meetings across the country. We tallied the business rides that travelers took in 2017, and here are your top business travel destinations of the year.

Hotel Chains

From San Diego to Boston, business travelers sunk into luxury pillow-tops and iconic hotel pools (after the meeting, of course) at over 6,000 Marriott Hotel properties — like the Ritz-Carlton and Courtyard by Marriott — recently ranked #1 on J.D. Power's 2017 Hotel Loyalty Program Satisfaction Study.

Business Travel Day

After a week of client meetings or a long business trip, there’s nothing quite like grabbing a Lyft ride home on a Thursday. Business travelers ride the most during the middle of the week, and the least on Monday and Friday.

1. Thursday
2. Wednesday
3. Tuesday

 

Business Travel Time of Day

The most popular times for business rides came so close we could almost call them a three-way-tie: The commuter hours see the most business rides during the day. And while some business travelers start their days as early as 4 AM, the business ride traffic rises steadily to the morning peak from 8 AM to 9 AM.

1. 5-6 PM
2. 8-9 AM
3. 6-7 PM
