PUNE: Meet uberX – Your low cost Uber!

Three months ago, we brought UberBLACK to Pune, helping thousands of riders get around the city in a safe, reliable and hassle-free way. Today, we’re excited to introduce a lower cost option for your everyday use, bringing us closer to being Everyone’s Private Driver.

MEET UBERX

uberX is your low cost option with the same convenience and reliability you’ve come to know and love. Vehicles on uberX are commercially licensed cars with seating for up to four people – think Toyota Etios and Swift Dzire. Beginning today, using the same app, you can simply slide over to the uberX option at the bottom of your screen to request an uberX.

Casual, reliable, and effortlessly cool.

NEW TO UBER?

Use promo code “UBERXPUNE” and get Rs. 400 off your first uberX ride!

(L to R) – Dr. Anand Deshpande, Founder & Chairman of Persistent Systems; Protima Tiwary, Lifestyle Blogger; and Sahil Khan & Hrishikesh Rajpathak, Co Founders, Quinto fire up the Uber app to check out the slick new uberX service in the city!

 

HOW MUCH DOES UBERX COST?

HOW DO THESE FARES COMPARE?

At launch, we’re testing the very limits of low pricing with promotional limited period fares. uberX is your cheapest private ride around town. If you can find a friend to fare-split your ride with, it is, in some cases even cheaper than an auto-rickshaw! Check out the sample fares* below:
