The Details

What is uberX?

Madison uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability with prices up to 20% cheaper than a taxi. Driver partners on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people.

To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all driver partners pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX partner in Madison, driver partners 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.

Introducing Xchange Leasing: Lease Options Built for Uber Driver-Partners

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.
