In the Capital and Central Valley, uberX is cheaper than ever

Fall is right around the corner, but the sun is still scorching the heart of the Golden State. While temperatures will fade in the coming months, our summer pricing isn’t going anywhere.

Starting today, we’re cutting prices in the Capital and our Central Valley cities. 


When the summer promo was first announced, we said the more you ride, the more likely we can keep prices low. Riders in Sacramento, Fresno and Modesto requested rides all summer long, so we’re making good on our offer.

The price drop is different in each city, but one thing is certain — uberX is the cheapest ride around. Here’s the savings you’ll see in Central California.

City Price Cut %
Sacramento 19%
Fresno 17%
Modesto 27%

Curious about what this savings will look like on a trip? We’re glad you asked. Here’s a look at some sample fares:


Sacramento: Old Sacramento to Discovery Park

Fresno: Fresno State University to Old Town





Modesto: MJC to Vintage Faire Mall





Thanks for helping make this summer our busiest yet! We’re in much of Northern California now, and we can’t wait to fill in the gaps. If you have any questions about the new rates in Sacramento, Fresno or Modesto, feel free to drop us a line here.
