News study claims ride-shares are filled with germs


Catching an Uber or Lyft has become a big part of going out for millions of Americans.

But you should know you’re likely jumping into the backseat of a ride filled with germs.

A new study finds rideshares carry triple the amount of germs as rental cars.

To put it another way, your toothbrush holder and toilet seat have fewer germs.

The study used swabs from surfaces, each of rideshares, taxis and rental cars.

In rideshare cars, the most germs were found on window buttons and seat belts.
