Uber reaches incredible milestone: 2 billion rides Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has announced this week that the company has reached an incredible milestone: 2 billion rides.
More impressively is the fact that the company hit 1 billion trips just seven months ago, six years after launching.

Uber is now in 450 cities and is the most-funded private company of all-time, having raised $13 billion since inception. The company is now valued at $62.5 billion.

For now the company has no plans to go public but when it does it will be the largest IPO since Alibaba and Facebook.

Yeah.......who cares!

McDonalds hit this long ago. Remember "Over a billion served" anyone??

Now, those signs are gone.

This is no milestone IMO. There are 7.1 billion on this planet so it's not an aww-inspiring figure.
