St. Paul, Your uberX has Arrived ….and it’s FREE!

Ubers have been rolling through the Twin Cities for almost a year now, bringing reliable transportation and sleek sophistication to riders with one  convenient tap of the app. But we know…true ease comes with the freedom of choice. Enter: uberX!

WHAT IS uberX?

uberX is our low cost, ridesharing option that combines that same great Uber quality and reliability you know and love, with prices cheaper than a taxi. On uberX, you’ll find a mix of hybrid and mid-range cars — think Prius and Toyota Camry — in a variety of styles, with seating for up to four riders.



  1. uberX cars will be on the road starting at 5pm TODAY, Sept 5th!
  2. Open up your Uber app and you’ll find three options along the bottom: uberX, Black, or SUV.
  3. Toggle over to uberX to give it a try.
  4. Set your pickup location and tap the “Request uberX” button. You must request from the St. Paul area.
  5. Shoot us some feedback via the in-app rating screen or @Uber_MSP.


We thought you’d say that! And you’re in luck…

because for the month of September, you can ride uberX FREE*!

Just request, ride and enjoy. :)

uberX will likely be in extremely high demand, so there may be times when cars are unavailable. Our team is working around the clock to get more cars on the road, but please be patient and fear not! You can still request an UberBLACK or SUV to get you where you need to go.

As always, hit me at or tweet me @Uber_MSP with any Qs, concerns, or #MSPuberX love!

Don’t forget your friends! Share the good word — because who doesn’t love free Uber?

Newbies, sign up here now.

Happy uberX-ing! :)

Janel, Uber MSP


*Valid for five (5) uberX rides per user, up to $20 off each, through 9/30/13. Discount will automatically apply to trip. Pickup location must be set in St. Paul.
