FREE UBERX RIDES. IT’LL CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE COLUMBUS.
Ubers have been rolling around Columbus for several months connecting riders with reliable transportation and the sleek sophistication of uberBLACK. But we know…true ease comes with the freedom of choice. Enter our low cost option: uberX!
Enjoy uberX FREE for the next 2 weeks!
What is uberX?
Columbus uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability with prices up to 25% cheaper than a taxi. Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people – like our friend and uberX Rider Zero, Mark Titus.
To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Columbus, drivers must pass:
• A stringent background check
• A driving history check
• An in-person interview and screening
• Ongoing quality controls
As always, your safety and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by the driver’s insurance policy as well as our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver and contribute to the quality with your feedback.
What does uberX cost?
Even after our free promotion ends on March 11th, uberX will be better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi.
Ohio State University to the Arena District: $8 – $10
Short North to CMH: $14 – $18
German Village to Short North: $7 – $10

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
