Uber’s Annual Lost and Found Index: Delhi continues its run as most forgetful city

Uber today released the 2024 edition of its Lost and Found Index, a snapshot of the most frequently forgotten items, the most forgetful cities, as well as the days of the week and times of the year when Uber riders tend to be most forgetful.

Delhi bagged the title of the most forgetful city in the country for the second year in the running, even as Mumbai retained its second spot. Bangalore reclaimed its third place from Hyderabad, which slipped to the fourth position, as residents became more watchful about their belongings. Pune rounded up the top five most forgetful cities in the country.

Over the last year, objects including phones, bags, wallets and clothing top the list of items left in Ubers across India, followed by utility items such water bottles, keys, and accessories such as spectacles and jewellery. Indians also forgot unique things such as a Ukulele instrument, a coin collection, prasad and a hair trimmer. Riders also left behind important documents such as passports, bank and business papers in their Ubers. 

 Nitish Bhushan, Head of Central Operations, Uber, said, "With Uber, you have the option to attempt retrieving the lost item by simply following a few steps in the app. We understand the trust riders put in us each time they take an Uber ride, and we felt the time was opportune to provide a quick refresher course on how to retrieve lost items." 

The study further revealed that people were most liekly to forget their belongings in an Uber on Saturdays. Blue coloured items were left behind the most in Ubers, followed by Red and Pink. 

Besides this,most items were left behind after 7 pm and riders with Apple devices were most forgetful during the year gone by, among other things.
