What is uberX?

Columbus uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability with prices up to 25% cheaper than a taxi. Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people – like our friend and uberX Rider Zero, Mark Titus.

To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Columbus, drivers must pass:

•   A stringent background check

•   A driving history check

•   An in-person interview and screening

•   Ongoing quality controls

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.

German Village to Short North: $7 – $10
