Uber Has Officially Launched in the ‘nati!

It’s been two weeks since Ubers began cruising the streets of the Queen City, and the #UberLove we’ve received from Cincinnatians so far has been overwhelming. We have enjoyed every minute of being in Cincy, and that’s why we want to make this official: Uber has officially launched in The ‘Nati

The excitement in Cincinnati has been nothing short of remarkable, and we couldn’t be more pumped to be here. So we are working to bring you the Uber experience you expect, adding more cars to the system every day and changing the way you move in the city.

Want to ride like royalty? Roll around town in ultimate style and comfort with UberBLACK, the original Uber that connects you with your own professional driver in a black sedan. 

Heading to work, no frills needed? Checkout uberX.

What is uberX?

uberX includes ridesharing, with prices up to 30% 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. 

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

  • A stringent background check
  • A driving history check
  • An in-person interview and screening
  • Ongoing quality controls

As always, our commitment to your safety and satisfaction remain our top 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.

Sample Fares uberX Uber Black
Hyde Park to Fountain Square $12 – $16 $23 – $29
Clifton to Over the Rhine $9 – $12 $18 – $22
Newport on the Levee to Hyde Park $13 – $16 $23 – $30

Just in time for Opening Day, you have the ability to see and experience the City of Seven Hills like never before. Whether it’s from the back seat of an uberX, or while you’re riding in style with UberBLACK, the choice is yours – just as it should be.
