Uber just hinted it could be in serious trouble if it doesn’t conquer the market for electric bikes and scooters

- Since February, Uber users have been able to book an electric bike through the app. Now the bikes are taking a big chunk out of Uber’s core car-ride business.
- An Uber employee published early results of an analysis showing that it booked 10% fewer rides in cars and SUVs in San Francisco after the company got into bike-sharing.
- The data suggests that Uber could be in serious trouble if the emerging scooter-sharing market also cuts into its car-hailing business.
