Boston, your uberXL is arriving now…

It’s been almost a year since uberX, our most affordable ride started cruising the streets of Beantown. We’re growing up, and things just got a whole lot better (and bigger)…Boston, meet the newest member of the uberX family – uberXL.

Beginning today, May 8th, you can request an even roomier ride for less. UberXL is (you guessed it) an XL version of our uberX offering, consisting of vehicles with seating for up to six passengers – think Honda Pilots and Toyota Siennas.

  • Request the uberXL option via your app
  • Ride with a group of up to 6 people for less than a TAXI
  • $3.50 (Base Fare) + $.35/Min + $2.45/Mile + $1 Safe Rides Fee

Summer is fast approaching…where will you take your uberXL?

  • Head to Mother’s Day brunch with the entire fam!
  • Get your Ultimate Frisbee teammates to the park for a match in an uberXL – frisbees not included 🙂
  • Heading to commencement (or out of town to avoid commencement crowds)? Fare split with uberXL!

Demand for uberXL may be high, so thanks in advance for your patience as uberXL gets up and running. As always, UberSUV is also a great option for large groups!
