What is uberX?

In Kansas City, uberX ridesharing offers Uber reliability at prices cheaper than a taxi! Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating to accomodate up to four passengers. To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Kansas City, drivers must pass:

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.


Start enjoying your free rides today! If you don’t see an uberX at first, don’t worry! We’re still in the testing phase, so there may be times when availability is limited. Just refresh your Uber app after a few minutes to request a ride & you’ll be on your way. Questions? Comments? Hit us up at supportkc@uber.com , or tweet us @Uber_KC! uberX on, Team Uber KC
