Charlotte, uberX is Arriving Now and it is FREE!

Uber has been back in Charlotte for less than a week, bringing riders a stylish and reliable transportation option at just the tap of the Uber app! But with so much #UberLove already, we just couldn’t wait to offer Charlotteans the same amazing freedom of choice we offer riders in so many other Uber cities . . .

uberX is now in Charlotte and it’s FREE through October 10th!

*Valid for three (3) uberX rides per user in Charlotte, up to $20 off each through October 10th, 2013 only. Discount will automatically apply to trip.



WHAT IS uberX?
uberX is our low cost, ridesharing option that combines that same great Uber quality and reliability as UberBLACK, with prices cheaper than a taxi. On uberX, you’ll find a mix of hybrid and mid-range cars — think Prius and Toyota Camry — in a variety of styles with seating for up to four riders.



  1. uberX cars are on the road starting September 11th!

  2. Open up your Uber app and you’ll now see two vehicle options to choose from: uberX and UberBLACK.

  3. Toggle over to uberX to give it a try.

  4. Set your pickup location and tap the “Request uberX” button.

  5. Shoot us some feedback via the in-app rating screen after your trip!

uberX is free through October 10th, but even after that it will always be affordable. With no fees for extra passengers, stops, or luggage, you can expect an uberX trip to be cheaper than a standard taxi.



We thought you’d say that! And you’re in luck… because for the rest of the month of September, you can ride uberX FREE*! Just request, ride and enjoy.

During these first few weeks, there will likely be extremely high demand for uberX, so there may be times when cars are unavailable. Our team is working around the clock to get more cars on the road, but please be patient and fear not—you can still request an UberBLACK to get you where you need to go if an uberX isn’t available.

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out at or tweet us @Uber_CLT with any questions, concerns, or #CLTuberX love!

  • Don’t forget your friends! Share the good word — because who doesn’t love free Uber?
  • Know someone interested in joining our Charlotte team? We’re hiring!

Happy uberXing!

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
