Both new and existing users — get your first 5 rides FREE (up to $25 each) in Jackson, MS through December 25.

Rider Zero

We were thrilled to have Mayor Tony Yarber and Jackson Council President De’Keither Stamps as our Rider Zeros. They tested out the Uber experience and took the first trip in Jackson!

New to Uber?

In Jackson our ridesharing option, uberX, offers safe and reliable rides with prices 32% cheaper than a taxi. Our uberX driver partners have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four passengers. To maintain Uber-high standards, all driver partners must undergo and pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to become an uberX driver-partner in Mississippi, a person must pass:

  • A screening process, including a driving and criminal history check
  • Ongoing quality controls

As always, your safety remains our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by our insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate your driver after every trip to help ensure the highest quality experience. Sounds great, right? Sign up now and see for yourself!


If you don’t see uberX at first, please be patient! Since Uber is still in its rollout phase in Jackson, availability will be limited. Simply check back in the Uber app after a few minutes and try requesting again. Uber’s most reliable coverage area in Jackson can be found here, but will be rapidly expanding around the Mississippi capital.

Check out a few sample fares from around Jackson:

  • Union Station to Jackson State University: $7
  • Fondren to East Pearl Street: $10
  • Downtown to Jackson-Evers International Airport: $22
