Hyderabad uberX – Our very own Rider Zeros

Hyderabad asked, and we listened. Since the day the first Ubers hit the streets of Hyderabad earlier this year, we have been overwhelmed with the love you have shown us. We helped thousands of people get around the city in a reliable, safe and stylish way and today with the launch of uberX we bring you the same slick Uber experience at arguably the lowest price possible.

uberX is our low cost option for everyday use that combines the same great Uber convenience and reliability you know and love. With the convenient fare-split option, it could work out even cheaper than an auto-rickshaw!

The launch kicked off with Swati Sucharitra, eminent journalist and Hyderabad’s top food critic, firing up the Uber app. As the uberX arrived within minutes for her early morning appointment, she said, “I would call an Uber for business meetings as well as a pub evening out with friends. It’s swish, cool & quick.edited3

Our next request was from the poster child of the Hyderabad Tech Start Up scene, Ramesh Loganathan who said, “I do a lot of ad-hoc travel in the city for meetings, prospects, industry associations, startups and more. uberX will be a perfect alternative to my Enfield  Bullet” and left us with a broad smile as he rode away to work.edited4

On the other side of town, the man of the people, RJ Rahul was requesting a ride just as he was wrapping up his 9 PM RedFM radio show. Within minutes, a shiny Uber had pulled up with Sadiq behind the wheels. We caught him just before he sped away for his recordings and asked him why uberX? He flashed a grin and said, “Listening to the radio while in the car is way more fun seated in the passenger seat.edited6

With Hyderabad’s very first riders spreading the word, Rakul Preet, the star of Yaariyan, was in need of a reliable and stylish ride to her shoot in Film Nagar, and Uber saved the day.UntitledPhoto Credits – Malavika Sivaraju
