Welcome uberX To the Ohana

uberX has made its way to Honolulu! uberX is the low cost Uber – better, faster and ONcheaper than a taxi. You’ll be getting rides from local folks using their own cars. They’re everyday people leveraging our technology and their free time to provide you with safe and reliable rides all while earning extra income. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!







To kick off the launch of uberX here, we’re offering up free rides for everyone on Oahu! Starting June 12th all the way to June 25th, you’ll get to tap that app for FREE! 5 rides will be on the house up to $50 each.


Zak Noyle snags the first uberX ride in Honolulu!

Zak Noyle was late for a photo shoot and needed a ride, fast. Zak opened up his UBER app, toggled over to uberX, and within minutes Frederic arrived in a Prius and they were off! Congrats to Zak for being the first uberX rider in Honolulu and kicking off the celebration. couldn’t be more honored to have the Punahou grad help us kick off this celebration!

We’ve had many big names be our Rider Zero in other cities, such as Ed Norton, Tony Hawk and Oahu’s own Kala Alexander was Rider Zero when we launched back in August of 2013. Happy to have helped Zak get to his shoot with a safe and reliable ride from uberX.

We live in the most beautiful place on the planet and our waters have a big role in what makes it so magical. No one captures the magnificence of the ocean better than Zak. His photography can always be found in SURFER Magazine as he’s the Senior Staff Photographer for the publication. Below you can see his award winning 2012 Photo of the Year as named by SURFER Magazine.  Best viewed in full HD!



In Honolulu, driver-partners who utilize the uberX platform are everyday people behind the wheel of their own clean, modern, and reliable cars. Each driver-partner goes through a stringent background check, driving history check, in-person interviews, ongoing quality controls, verification of insurance coverage and a zero-tolerance policy regarding drugs and alcohol when using the Uber platform. They’re also fully insured and are able to drive you with peace of mind! Their cars can come in a variety of colors, and will always have seating for up to four people. uberX is your better-faster-cheaper way to get around.


Hawaii was just recently named by forbes.com to be #1 in two different categories; worst traffic and worst state to make a living. Imagine our islands NOT being #1 in those categories. Uber can help! Everyone can always use a little extra cash, right? While many of us own cars, there’s a great number of us that can spare a little extra time to drive on their own schedule! That’s the beauty of partnering with Uber – you get to be your own boss and advance one step closer to economic liberty. Driver-partners work when they want and as much as they want. 24/7 flexible work schedule – they choose their own hours (part-time/full-time) – we’re always open! With complete transparency, driver-partners see how much they earn per trip. They’re real fares and not donations.
