Chico, Your uberX Has Arrived

Whether you’re starting your night at 5th and Ivy, heading out to float the Sacramento River, or on your way to campus, you no longer have to think about how to get there. You can now get around “the city of trees” safely and without hassle.

Download the Uber app, and whenever you’re ready, pinpoint your location, enter your destination and a driver will be ready to pick you up within minutes. You can track the exact location of the driver so you don’t have to wait outside alone. You can even share information about your trip with anyone who is waiting for you at your destination or wants to know you are safely on your way home.

After requesting an Uber ride, you’ll get a picture of your driver, the vehicle make and license plate number. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, there’s no need to exchange payment since it’s all done automatically through the Uber app—just rate the driver to make sure Uber remains a safe and reliable option in Chico.

So, where can you go? And for how much? uberX serves Chico and surrounding areas, and most trips will cost less than $10.
