We actually wrote an article answering this question a few years back. It shares our insights on what it would take to create something like Uber and is very much still relevant today. Here is an excerpt:
"Many of the companies we’ve spoken to have a budget between $5,000 to $20,000 for developing an Uber-like app! They think that Uber is simply a taxi company that offers an app for booking rides. This, however, is not the reality. Uber is not a taxi company. Uber is a global technology company whose revenue model is based on offering convenience to its customers… the particular solution they are offering just happens to be disrupting the taxi/limo/car service industry. The big takeaway here is that while on the surface Uber might seem like a simple service, there are many different parts that are required for their platform to operate. And making an UBER like the platform is not necessarily an easy and most certainly not a cheap endeavor."
