On June 30, 2012, we reached 1,000 trips in NYC. Today, we reached 100,000,000. Where to next, New York? pic.twitter.com/s2a0ILX4GC— Uber NYC (@Uber_NYC) August 1, 2016
Uber has served 100 million trips in New York CityIn June 2012, the ride-sharing service had managed just one thousand journeys.
As Uber strikes million-dollar deals in China, it's also celebrating a milestone in one of the first places it established itself: New York. The company has announced that it's now delivered 100 million trips to users in the city, which explains why it's investing deeply in things like global mapping -- to the tune of $500 million. It's not all happy mergers and expansion: the company is still fighting bans, suspensions and fines across the world; you're still going to have to hire a normal taxi if you're planning a trip to Hungary, for example.
