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.
