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!

A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
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.
