WHAT IS uberX?

In Nashville, uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability with prices cheaper than a Nashville taxi. Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people.

To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Nashville, 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 and contribute to the quality with your feedback.



When riding with your friends, you can Fare Split in the Uber app for even lower prices. Split a ride from Vandy to East Nashville between four friends and each of you pays around $3. 



At Uber, we aim to offer economic opportunity and independence through our technology. Our partner drivers earn more and have absolute freedom to set their schedule. Anyone with a car can apply!
