New to Uber?

If you’ve got questions about uberX, we’ve got the answers here! In Roanoke our ridesharing service, uberX, will offer reliability with affordable prices. 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 the Uber standard you expect, all driver partners must undergo Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver-partner in Virginia, 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 every driver to help ensure the highest quality experience. Sounds great, right? Sign up now and see for yourself! SignUptoRideBtn-depth

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

Check out a few sample fares from around Roanoke:

  • Downtown Roanoke to Raleigh Court: $12
