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.


Sample Fare Estimate
Miller Park to Downtown $12.50
UW Milwaukee to the Bradley Center $8.75
Wauwatosa to Downtown $13.00


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.

Want to be the envy of Milwaukee on Monday? We are giving away a freshly signed hat courtesy of your opening day catcher – pitcher duo. Spread the news to be entered to win!
