Ubers are hitting the roads of OKC, y’all!
Basketball season started storming through Oklahoma City this week, but this Thunderous news wasn’t the only thing making noise – secret Ubers hit the roads of OKC, transforming the way Oklahomans get around town!
Nick Collison scored the perfect drive when he requested the first uberX ride in OKC at the touch of a button. Within minutes, Nick’s driver arrived to take him to practice, earning him the title of Oklahoma City Rider Zero.
uberX, the cost-efficient ridesharing option from Uber, offers reliable and quality service at prices cheaper than a taxi. Yes, you heard that right! Getting ‘round town is now easier and faster than ever before.

What is Ridesharing?
We’re partnering with drivers like you and me who will be driving their own cars. All drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process (but are not licensed as professional chauffeurs), which includes:
Stringent background check
Driving history check
In-person interview and screening
A city knowledge exam
On-going quality controls
Bottom line: our riders’ security and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides continue to be backed up by our corporate insurance policy, and riders always have the option to rate every driver and improve the system with their feedback.

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.
