Is it official?  More Uber trips being taken more than taxis now.

Number of medallions control the # of cars in NYC.  While number of Ubers continue to climb.

    NO it is not Uber and etc ,its the filthy politicians who have blood on their thick under the table envelopes. Hey people don't have a heart attack in Manhattan because there is a good chance you will die. If there is ever a major Terrorist attack consider yourself part of the walking dead.

    And this is why NYC traffic has gotten significantly worse over the past 2 years, at this point the fastest transportation option is your own two feet.

    First graph.  If you aggregate the three lines, you get how many trips are actually being taken.  That shows how more and more rides are being taken by consumers.  No wonder Manhattan is seeing traffic problems.

      Actually, isn't this the saving grace for taxi drivers?  Uber with its new technoogy and convenience is creating more demand.  They aren't necessarily taken rides away from taxi drivers..

    Umm...the # of uber cars climbing at that rate is alarming.  Unique vehicles....so those drivers are making less and less then.

    Not that we didn't know this before, but these graphs are super telling.

    RIP taxis.

    Say it ain't so.  This graph makes me so sad.  What's Manhattan without those Yellow Cabs?

      That's ok. Uber will probably just offer yellow cars.  or "UberYellow."  Then we are done.

      So Uber will just be the taxi company.  It's a full circle.
