These are the Most Common, and the Most Unique, Items Left In Ubers

Don't leave these behind if you want to keep that 5-star rating.

Uber has released their seventh annual Lost & Found Index, providing insight into what exactly riders are leaving behind in their Uber rides. The 2023 Uber Lost & Found Index showed that riders still keep forgetting the usual items - phone, keys, wallet - but many have left behind unusual, and sometimes questionable, items as well. Uber also revealed the top 10 most “forgetful” cities, as well as which items are most commonly lost on each day of the week. 

So, before you get out of your next Uber, make sure you grab your purse, phone, and yes, your dog. Remember this list when you're using a rideshare so you don't lose money and time fixing your mistake. You don’t want to have to go through the process of getting your keys, or your poodle, back from your driver, and I can assure you they don’t either.
