Denver, Meet uberX
Uber has connected thousands of Denverites with high-quality, luxury transportation with the tap of an app and — with the overwhelming support of our riding public and incredible partner drivers — Colorado regulators recently affirmed Uber’s legality in the Centennial State.
But we know that as much as Denver riders love getting picked up and dropped off in style, sometimes you’d prefer a safe, clean, efficient ride at a lower price point. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of a ridesharing option called uberX in the Mile High City.
In Denver, drivers who utilize the uberX platform are people like you and me, behind the wheel of their own clean, modern, and reliable cars. These cars can come in a variety of colors, and will always have seating for up to four people. Colorado regulators, in addition to embracing UberBLACK and SUV, have been permitting ridesharing in Denver; and uberX is your better-faster-cheaper way to get around.
Ridesharing on uberX is all about connecting you to the best possible transportation at the lowest price, all with drivers who know their way around town.

Where is my uberX?
We’re working around the clock to bring more partners onto our system, but there may be times when uberX cars are unavailable. Fear not! You can still request an UberBLACK or SUV to get you to where you need to go.

How are uberX ridesharing partners screened?
We’re committed to maintaining the high quality you’ve come to expect when using the Uber app. UberBLACK and SUV options remain unchanged, and will continue to use only commercially licensed for-hire drivers. For uberX, ridesharing partners must pass a rigorous screening process, including:
Stringent background checks
Driving history checks
In-person interviews and screenings
Ongoing quality controls
Verification of insurance coverage
A zero-tolerance policy regarding drugs and alcohol when using the Uber platform
Any questions or concerns about uberX can be directed to us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Team Uber Denver
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.
