Uber Connecticut Launches with Free Rides for 2 Weeks
Starting today, Ubers are officially rolling out in Fairfield and New Haven Counties! We’re thrilled to bring you a seamless, stylish, and convenient way to get around the Constitution State. Best news since the Huskies won both championships? We think so.
To celebrate, we’re giving you 5 FREE* rides to enjoy through Sunday, May 11th!
UPDATE: WE’VE EXTENDED THIS OFFER SO YOU HAVE EVEN MORE TIME TO TAKE YOUR FREE RIDES FROM MAY 15 – MAY 26.
Whether you’re traveling to Metro-North or just looking to enjoy the Merritt Parkway from the backseat of an Uber, request a ride and have a car at your doorstep in minutes.
SPREAD THE WORD
HOW IT WORKS
- OPEN the Uber app in Fairfield or New Haven County
- REQUEST a ride and your driver will arrive within minutes

New to Uber? Sign up here to take advantage of your FREE rides.
*Free rides will be applied automatically through May 26th, 2014, at 11:59 PM EDT. Rides must begin OR end in Connecticut. Rides are free up to $30 — if your fare exceeds $30, the difference will be charged to your account on file. Availability may be limited at times. Please be patient!
We’re bringing uberX to Connecticut!
uberX IS BETTER, FASTER, CHEAPER THAN A CONNECTICUT TAXI
In Connecticut, uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability you’re used to with prices 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 passengers.
uberX rates in Connecticut
To maintain the Uber standard you’re used to, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Connecticut, drivers must pass:
- A stringent background check
- A driving history check
- 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.

Team Uber Connecticut
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
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.
