uberX makes its way to Kuala Lumpur!

Eight months ago, we introduced UberBLACK, our flagship premium product to get KL-lites moving around the city in a sophisticated and reliable way with a simple tap of a button. Today, we are super excited to announce our new product, uberX, with even cheaper pricing.


KL, say hello to uberX – The Low Cost Uber!

WHAT IS uberX?

With the uberX experience you will get the same Uber reliability, convenience and safety with one marked difference – PRICE (15% lower than a budget taxi). Riding in an uberX may very well be cheaper than parking at some shopping malls in KL.



Swipe and request for an uberX and find yourself rolling around KL swiftly and safely in a Perodua Myvi, Nissan Almera, and Toyota Vios in a variety of colors and styles, seating up to four passengers.




We weren’t kidding when we said that uberX is cheaper than driving to and parking in some shopping malls. Have a look at our sample fares comparison below:

uberX (RM) Taxi (RM)
Bukit Bintang to Subang Jaya 25 30
Mid Valley City to One Utama 13 18
KLCC to Bangsar Baru 12.50 16
SS2 to Sri Hartamas 10 80



Download the Uber app for iPhone, Android and Windows and complete the registration process. For Uber riders who have already downloaded the app and registered an account, these steps aren’t required.

Simply open your Uber app, swipe and select the uberX vehicle view option when you’re ready to request for your uberX. One app, two products. Start enjoying the affordability, safety, and convenience of uberX today!
