uberX just got even more affordable in PVD!

We’ve got some extremely exciting news for you. For a limited time, Uber rates are 26% cheaper!

Now that Uber is even more affordable in Rhode Island than ever, we want you to get excited and give us a try! We’re giving all new users their first two Uber rides free up to $20 in PVD.



$3.00 + $2.30 + $0.25 = uberX fare
Base Fare Per Mile Per Minute ($5 minimum)



Of course you do! The more Uber trips you take, the more rides the drivers get, which means we’re able to keep the prices lower longer. Everyone wins.

Using Uber’s new Fare Split feature, you can legitimately make Uber the cheapest transportation option in Rhode Island!

Quick scenario: you, 3 friends, 1 uberX. Going from the East Side to Downtown? Fare split that ride and guess what – you each pay less than $2.

So it’s up to you, RI. Spread the good news and let your friends know about the uberX price cuts!

  • uberX fares will no longer be rounded down to the nearest dollar. This way, your final fare is more predictable and clear.
  • Lower prices increase demand for rides, meaning drivers do more trips at every hour of the day; maximizing their income any time they choose to go online.


With the growing population of ridesharing in Providence, we’re also going to start testing ridesharing on uberX, making even more drivers available by partnering with people just like you. All of these drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening, including a background check, an in-person screening, and ongoing quality control. From your perspective, nothing should change – except for more cars on the road and shorter wait times!
