uberX is now cheaper than ever in Ottawa

With the temperature rising, we’re lowering prices in Ottawa by 10% so you can enjoy safe and reliable rides at our best prices to date.


If you or your friends have yet to try uberX, now is the time. Request, and take a ride with a neighbour like Glen, who recently won our Sixth Star Award for being the top rated driver in Canada.

How does this affect drivers? As we have see in Canadian cities before, when prices are lowered, demand among riders increases. But what we have found is that the increased demand turns into more efficiency for the driver, more trips for every hour, and more earnings for every hour on the road.

These prices are temporary and the more you ride, the more likely we can keep prices low (and wallets happy) in the long term. We expect these price cuts to bring lower costs for riders, higher earnings for driver, shorter wait times for both, and a better experience for all.
