uberX Has Arrived In MKE in Time For Opening Day!
Monday’s starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo and catcher Jonathan Lucroy, fired up the Uber app today to take the first uberX ride in Milwaukee! Your 2014 home opener battery and the Uber team are proud to announce the arrival of uberX: our low-cost option with ridesharing!
At rates up to 25% cheaper than a TAXI, even Jonathan Lucroy didn’t see this steal coming. The launch of uberX in Milwaukee gives a whole new meaning to the word reliable. Don’t be alarmed if you start to confuse your uberX ride’s ETA with Yovani Gallardo’s ERA 😉
That’s right, just like Lucroy in the bottom of the 9th, Uber is coming through in the clutch. No need to enter a promo code, just request and ride! We are hooking everyone in Milwaukee up with 5 free rides (up to $25 each) until April 7th. Don’t worry, even after the free promo ends, uberX will be better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi.
|Miller Park to Downtown||$12.50|
|UW Milwaukee to the Bradley Center||$8.75|
|Wauwatosa to Downtown||$13.00|
WHAT IS RIDESHARING?
uberX includes ridesharing, offering the reliability you’ve come to expect from Uber at an ultra low price. Drivers on uberX have mid-range vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating up to 4 people.
To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver partner in Milwaukee, 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 partner and provide feedback to maintain quality.

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.
