Uber has officially outdone the New York City yellow cab. 

There are now more Uber vehicles operating on the streets of the Big Apple than yellow cabs, according to the Taxi and Limousine Commission.

The company has 14,088 cars compared to 13, 587 medallion cabs.

Part of the four-year-old company’s success can be attributed to higher pay for its drivers.

Uber drivers make about twice what a yellow cab driver does in NYC.

Uber has also done a good job at luring drivers away from behind the wheel of yellow cabs.

There are no fare beaters among Uber passengers as customers must pay their fare in advance.

The TLC says it has concerns over Uber’s methodology including that it does not pay surcharges to the MTA and that the vehicles are adding to the congestion in Manhattan.
