We’re making a huge splash in the River City: today, uberX is hitting the streets of Jacksonville – delivering a seamless, reliable and affordable way to move around the city. Whether you’re heading to beaches or downtown, we’ve got you covered with the same Uber reliability you’re used to, but with prices cheaper than a taxi.



In Jacksonville, uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability you’re used to with prices cheaper than a taxi. Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four passengers – think Toyota Prius and Honda Accord.

Sample fares:

Atlantic Beach to Jacksonville Beach: $6
Riverside to downtown: $7
St. Johns’s Town Center to downtown: $20
Downtown to Jacksonville Beach: $27

To maintain the Uber quality you’re used to, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Jacksonville, drivers must pass:

          • A stringent background check
          • A driving 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 as our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver and contribute to the quality with your feedback


          • OPEN the Uber app on your iPhone, Android or Blackberry
          • REQUEST a ride and your driver will arrive curbside within minutes
          • RIDE for free…it’s that easy!

Not sure where to take all your free uberX rides?

          • Enjoy a famous Dusty Boot (or two!) on the rooftop of Black Sheep
          • Swing by Rosie True for help styling a fashion hole-in-one before heading down to Sawgrass
          • Head over to Jax Beach for a delicious brunch at Taco Lu, followed by some fun in the sun
          • Check out the new Mellow Mushroom in Avondale for trivia night and a cold Intuition Ale
          • Treat yourself to an #UberApproved Handcrafted Happy Hour at Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails
