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!
