Pittsburgh, Your Uber is Arriving Now

The City of Champions is tallying up another win as Uber hits the streets of Pittsburgh to change the way yinz’ get around. Uber, the mobile app connecting riders to drivers on-demand in over 70 cities worldwide, is now making its mark in The Steel City.

Steelers’ defensive end Cam Heyward, a Pittsburgh native, was the first person to take Uber for a spin through the Burgh’. He opened his Uber iPhone app, requested a ride and within minutes his uberX driver was on location.

Known in the locker room as “Wreck-it Ralph,” one thing Cam didn’t break by utilizing uberX was the bank. uberX is the ultra-reliable, cost-efficient ridesharing option from Uber. At prices cheaper than a taxi, it’s now easier than ever to get around Pittsburgh.

Downtown to Southside – $5
Southside to Shadyside – $7
Lawrenceville to Downtown – $10

Cam Heyward has officially given Uber his seal of approval and secured the coveted title of Pittsburgh Rider Zero.

Introducing Xchange Leasing: Lease Options Built for Uber Driver-Partners

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.
