Seen in the U.S. as early as 1909, yellow cabs were first incorporated by Albert Rockwell s Yellow Taxicab Company, in New York City in 1912; legend has it that he used yellow because his wife preferred the color. Cabs were standardized in 1937 and the official yellow color was used to signal riders that they were regulated cabs. Alternatively, in Chicago, John Hertz opened the first Yellow Cab Company in 1915 and he d commissioned a study on the most visible color, and bumblebee yellow won.
