AP, citing data from the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission, reports there are 14,088 registered Uber cars v. 13,587 yellow cabs.
However, the data points out that there are ~440K yellow cab rides per day, far outstripping the 20-30K Uber rides. The article notes this is partly because Uber drivers typically own their cars and work less than 40 hours per week, while yellow cabs have more than one driver and are on the road nearly 24 hours per day.
Some drivers and their organizations argue that Uber is flooding the market which lowers the average incomes for all drivers.
