NYC cabbies from Bangladesh

Filed under: bangladesh,global islands,india — admin @ 8:06 am

Taking a look at where New York City’s 43,402 taxicab drivers are from: about 2,300 are American.

The top five countries of origin for NYC cabbies:

1. Bangladesh
2. Pakistan
3. India
4. Haiti
5. United States

Although there are currently only 13,000 yellow cabs in NYC, one driver said that many ex-cabbies keep their taxi licenses active as a back-up plan in case their current jobs don’t work out.
