MAYOR BERNERO AND MAYOR TRIPLETT – GREATER LANSING RIDERS ZERO

We were very pleased to have the mayors of Lansing and East Lansing, Mayor Virg Bernero and Mayor Nathan Triplett, be our “Riders Zero” as we launched Uber in the Greater Lansing area! The two City Hall staples fired open their Uber apps and with one tap, requested an uberX ride in Lansing.

What is uberX?

In Michigan, our ridesharing service uberX offers Uber reliability with prices cheaper than a taxi. 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 partner in these Michigan cities, drivers must pass:

  • A pre-screening process, including a driving and criminal history check
  • Ongoing quality controls

As always, your safety and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by the driver’s insurance policy as well our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver and contribute to the quality with your feedback.

Start enjoying your free rides today! If you don’t see an uberX at first, don’t worry! Availability may be limited at times while we’re offering free rides. Just refresh your Uber app after a few minutes to request a ride, and you’ll be on your way.
