The Miami Herald was able to legally obtain documents related to the application for Uber’s license to operate in the county. Turned over by Miami-Dade county officials after Uber allowed the documents to be made public, the application shows Uber’s driver fleet at 9,478 when the form was completed. That number comes in slightly lower than what the company stated previously. By comparison, Lyft’s fleet total was 3,362 as of June 7,2016. As part of the agreement reached, Miami-Dade requires ride-hailing firms to pay $26 per licensed vehicle.
