Durban, Your uberX Is Arriving Now…and It’s Free!!!

10 months ago we launched Uber in Durban. Now we are taking things to the next level, bringing us one step closer to being Everyone’s Private Driver!

uberX is now in Durban…and it’s FREE until Sunday Night! 

*Valid for six uberX rides per user in Durban, up to R250 in value each, until Sun 24 Aug 2014 at 11pm. Input promotional code: UBERXDBN.

WHAT IS uberX?

uberX is a low-cost option that uses the same app to connect you with the most reliable & affordable ride in Durban. You can expect a clean and comfortable Toyota Corolla (or equivalent) to arrive within minutes.


  1. uberX cars are on the road starting TODAY, 21 August!

  2. Open up your Uber app and you’ll now see two vehicle options to choose from: uberX and uberBLACK.

  3. Toggle over to the left to give uberX a try.

  4. Set your pickup location and tap the “Request uberX” button.

  5. Shoot us some feedback via the in-app rating screen after your trip!


uberX is free* until Sunday evening, but even after that it will always be crazy affordable!
