Ride shares apps like Uber and Lyft are nowadays one of the most popular forms of transportation. But on your next ride, you’re better off bringing along some hand sanitizer, because these vehicles also have an incredible amount of germs.

A new study by netquote.com, an online insurance agency, showed that ride-shares contain more than three times the amount of germs in rental cars and over 200 times more germs than taxis.

For the study, different surfaces were swabbed to see how many colony-forming units (CFU) of micro-organisms were present. The highest concentration of germs in ride-share vehicles was present on the window buttons, where more than 5 million CFU per square inch was recorded. Seat belts also held high levels of bacteria at 1 million CFU per square inch.

To get a better idea of how dirty ride share vehicles are, just compare them to a toilet seat. Ride shares have 5-thousand times the amount of germs.

So do yourself a favor and don’t touch too many things while your seating in that Uber or Lyft. Also avoid touching your face and mouth and wash your hands as soon as possible afterwards.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
