Taipei, your uberX is arriving now!
Here at Uber Taipei, we do what all our parents tell us to do, we listen. And we’ve heard you loud and clear – you want a low-cost Uber. Today, we are delivering on that promise, with the introduction of uberX in Taipei!
It’s been a rainy week in Taipei, and notable Producer / DJ / Writer / Radio Host XUAN was able snag one of our secret uberX cars floating around and became our Rider Zero for uberX in Taipei!
On the other side of town, the actress Serena got her very own uberX en route to shopping for the perfect mother’s day gift, and also became our Rider Zero!
What is uberX?
uberX is like our traditional product, UberBLACK, except a little more affordable but just as fast and comfortable. Casual, reliable, and effortlessly cool. Of course, you can continue to expect the same Uberness that you’ve grown accustomed to using uberX – a clean, safe, professional and high quality ride – all at a price point that’s on-par or cheaper than a taxi! Simply move your slider across and select uberX within your app and you’re good to go!
What exactly is the difference in cost between UberBLACK and uberX?
To simplify things for you, we’ve switched our UberBLACK pricing to be based on distance AND time instead of distance OR time, which is what it had been previously. Note that this does not actually affect the overall cost of UberBLACK. See the chart below for a full breakdown of costs for UberBLACK and uberX
(note: Uber’s fees are calculated via GPS automatically)
How do you get started with Uber?
- Download the Uber app in the App Store or Google Play (Requires Android 2.1 or IOS 5 and above. All others can still use our service via m.uber.com )
- Hit register and enter your email, phone number and create a password.
- Enter your credit card information to complete the registration. All fees will be automatically deducted from this card going forward, reducing the need for you to scramble for change when getting off the car.
- Once you finish registration, set your pin to your location and you’re a few taps away from trying out Uber!
We hope you get a chance to try out uberX soon – and don’t forget to share your personalized promo code to all of your friends! The credit both of you earn is good for both UberBLACK and uberX! Enjoy!
