Positive Impact of Rideshare and Delivery Platforms on the Massachusetts Economy

A study from the UCLA Anderson School of Management found that rideshare and delivery platforms likely increase economic activity in Massachusetts by $8.3 billion per year. This drives over $503 million in state and local tax revenue.

Findings of recent research studies illustrate the impact that rideshare and delivery have in the economic livelihood of tens of thousands of individuals, as well as the state of Massachusetts.

A new study conducted by third-party researchers at BW Research Partnership (BW Research) and Mass Insight Global Partnerships found that Massachusetts app-based rideshare and food delivery drivers working on the DoorDash, Instacart, Lyft, and/or Uber platforms earned on average $26.08 per hour during a six month period in 2021 examined by the study. 

Un estudio desde Economía del faro descubrió que reclasificar a los conductores de viajes compartidos y entregas de Massachusetts como empleados daría lugar a la pérdida de al menos 58% de estos puestos de trabajo en el Commonwealth, y podría resultar en la pérdida de hasta 87% de todos los trabajos de viaje compartido y entrega en el estado.
