Improving Reliability in Durban

We love how much you love Uber in Durban. Since our launch in November 2013, we have been committed to providing you with a safe and affordable service that you can rely on – be it for your daily commute or in the early hours after a night out on the town. Thank you for your support- we never would have come this far without you!


As everyone’s private driver, we are committed to ensuring that all Durbanites have access to a reliable, safe, and seamless ride whenever he/she needs one. What do we need to do this? More cars on the road!

Uber Durban expands to the Dolphin Coast

uberX will now be reliably available in Ballito, Salt Rock, Sheffield and Umhlali!

What does this mean for you?

 Starting May 4 2015, you will no longer be able to request an UberBLACK vehicle in Durban. The reason? It has been revealed that the vast majority of Durbanites prefer uberX. To fully reach our goal of being “Everyone’s Private Driver” in Durban, we will focus on expanding and increasing the product that Durbanites prefer.


The benefits:

  • Expansion into the Dolphin Coast area
  • A higher quality uberX experience as we retrain all uberX partner drivers on the road
  • Lower estimated times of arrival as more Ubers cruise around your city


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the uberX product, see below for an understanding of just how far R50 will get you!


Please reach out to us on should you have any questions – we love to hear from you!
