Your uberX ride – What’s under the hood?

What is uberX?
uberX is, quite simply put, a cheaper version of the Uber you’ve come to know and love. It’s the same Uber app, the same comfort and convenience, and absolutely the very same safe experience you’re accustomed to.

Who provides your uberX ride?

In Singapore, we require our uberX driver partners, just as we do our Uber partners, to have vehicles that are commercially registered and maintain commercial auto insurance. We inspect the commercial registration and insurance of each partner’s vehicle before adding the vehicle to the Uber platform. Further, we also inspect the driver’s license and NRIC documentation before adding a driver to the Uber platform, while also running criminal background checks on all drivers.

Getting started: You’ve already got access to uberX!

  1. Open your Uber app
  2. At the bottom of your app, you will see your uberX option – slide over!
  3. Set pick up location and hit request! Your uberX will arrive in minutes.

Please note: If you have any promo codes currently applied on your account, it won’t be valid on your uberX ride. Your Uber credit, on the other hand, definitely will.

So date nights and client meetings – request an Uber! Shopping and running errands – request an uberX!

We’re definitely working hard on getting more rides on the road, and meanwhile, any feedback on uberX, send them our way: supportsingapore@uber.com

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
