Coming Soon, uberX in Dallas

It’s been one full year since we launched our service here in Dallas. Since our launch in D-town, we’ve partnered with licensed Dallas limo operators to provide the safe, reliable, and classy Uber service you all have grown to love.

Uber is everyone’s private driver, and we’re committed to offering Uber quality at every price point. Thus far, we’ve only had UberBLACK rolling in Dallas. But that is about to change. In a number of other cities we facilitate a range of transportation options, including lower cost uberX with ridesharing – a service where people like you and me provide rides with their own vehicles. UberX with ridesharing is currently available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Charlotte and Seattle where it has been met with overwhelming consumer demand.

Dallas has recently been permitting ridesharing in the city and we’re excited that uberX will soon be your better, faster cheaper ride.

To maintain the Uber standard you’ve come to expect, all uberX partners would have to pass Uber’s rigorous screening process, which includes:

  • Stringent background check
  • Driving history check
  • In-person interview and screening
  • A city knowledge exam
  • On-going quality controls

Bottom line: our riders’ security and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides continue to be backed up by our corporate insurance policy, and riders always have the option to rate every driver and improve the system with their feedback. Qualification standards for UberBLACK would remain unchanged.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Uber on,

Leandre Johns
