uberX MSP: Double the Fun with Rider Zeroes Harrison Smith + Toby Gerhart
uberX hits St. Paul today at 5pm, offering a new low-cost transportation option that combines the same great Uber quality and reliability you know and love, with prices cheaper than a taxi. And to kickoff the launch, not just one, but two Uber-awesome Vikings players were able to catch the very first uberX for a ride to practice this morning!
With the new season just around the corner, Rider Zeroes Harrison Smith and Toby Gerhart know the importance of a convenient, comfortable ride to get them to practice on time — and at a reasonable price! So when we told these two Uber fans that uberX was now available, it was just a quick tap of the app by Harrison and his new Toyota Camry arrived in no time.
But why have all the fun alone? Making a short stop to scoop up teammate Toby on the way, these Vikings found the key to keepin’ costs low during the perfect Uber ride — just split with a friend.
Whether it’s 7am workouts or 7pm nights out, uberX is the transportation of choice when these footballers need a better, faster, cheaper option to get around the Cities!
Try uberX FREE* for the month of September, and enjoy a new way to ride in Uber-style. Don’t forget to share the #MSPuberX love with friends!

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.
