Lisbon, Your uberX Is Arriving Now
Language: Português | English
Today we take a big step closer to our vision of being everyone’s private driver. We are incredibly excited to offer you an affordable and stylish alternative to get around town.
That’s right, uberX has finally arrived!
We are proud to offer Lisbon a brand new product, bringing a cheaper, reliable and simple alternative to get around in the city. To honour this launch we were thrilled to have two amazing Rider Zeros. They tested out the Uber experience and took the first trip with uberX in Lisbon!
Meet our Rider Zeros!
With just a tap of a button, the current X Factor Portugal host, Cláudia Vieira, requested a ride and before she knew it, an uberX arrived to whisk her away through the streets of her hometown.
Diogo Amaral was delighted to finally find a safe, reliable and affordable ride to get to the Jardins Proibidos shoots, where the Portuguese actor plays one of the main roles, “Eduardo”.
WHAT IS uberX?
uberX is a low-cost, eco-friendly and convenient way of getting around in Lisbon. uberX cars are commercially licensed and insured, seating up to four people — think Volkswagen Golf or Seat Leon. All drivers hold a valid license, and are screened and vetted by Uber.
Starting today, using the same app you love, you can simply slide over to the uberX option at the bottom of your screen to request an uberX — just like you would in London, Paris or New York!
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
- Download Uber on your smartphone for free (available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone)
- No need for cash. Sign up with a valid credit card.
- Set the pin on a pick up location and track the car in real-time.
During the first weeks, car availability will be limited and ETAs may be longer than usual. Don’t worry — we’re working hard to get more Ubers on the platform.
