Baltimore, Your uberX Is Arriving Now!
Sometimes Baltimore Raven Tyrod Taylor needs a sleek UberBLACK car to pick him up for a big night out — but most of the time he just needs a clean, comfortable ride to training. So today Tyrod opted for a casual commute that still scored big, being that it was better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi.
As our “Rider Zero,” Tyrod took the inaugural Baltimore uberX trip in a Honda Accord with his driver, Sami. Whether it’s a trip to the game, the grocery store, or the gym, uberX is the low-cost ride of choice for this Superbowl champ.
WHAT IS uberX?
uberX is our low-cost option, combining the same great Uber quality you’re used to with prices cheaper than a taxi. With uberX you’ll find a mix of hybrid and mid-range cars in a variety of styles, with seating for up to four people.
|Fed Hill to Harbor East||$15||$7|
|Fells Point to Penn Station||$19||$9|
|Canton to M&T Stadium||$27||$14|
|Downtown Baltimore to BWI||$45 (flat)||$28|
HOW DOES IT WORK?
To maintain the Uber standard you’ve come to expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Baltimore, drivers must pass:
• A stringent background check
• A driving history check
• An in-person interview and screening
• Ongoing quality controls
Bottom line: our riders’ security and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides continue to be backed by our corporate insurance policy, and riders always have the option to rate every driver and improve the system with their feedback. Qualification standards for UberBLACK remain unchanged. Know someone that might be interested in becoming an uberX driver? More info here.
Please keep in mind that uberX is still in beta mode and availability will be limited at first, but we encourage you to open up the app and give it a try. Need any more convincing? Just ask our Rider Zero, Tyrod! Or hit us up at supportBaltimore@uber.com. ; )

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
