The car service company Uber is celebrating its fourth anniversary in New York City.
The company said Monday that is has given about 2.5 million New Yorkers approximately 30 million rides since 2011.
Company executive Josh Mohrer said that 27 percent of those rides were to or from the city’s boroughs other than Manhattan.
The company said that its drivers have made a total of $750 million since the company started serving the nation’s largest city.
The company has drawn some criticism. Some say its prices are too high particularly at peak travel times.
And operators of the city’s famed yellow taxi fleets complain that the Uber cars have cut into their business.
City officials say there are now more Uber-affiliated cars on New York’s roads than yellow taxis.
