Uber Officially Launches in Pittsburgh

March 13, 2014 / Pennsylvania

Last updated: 7 Dec 2015

The Steel City reinforces that innovation is still at its very core as uberX — Uber’s low-cost option —officially launches today in Pittsburgh! uberX delivers the unique combination of reliability and efficiency at prices more than 25% cheaper than a taxi.

In a city where transportation alternatives are few and far between, Uber provides a modern, convenient, cost-effective way to get around town. Now, with the tap of a button, your driver will arrive and whisk you away to your dinner in Lawrenceville, to the Consol Energy Center to cheer on the Pens, or to bring you home from the Southside after a night out on the town. You now have the ability to see and experience The City of Bridges like never before.

WHAT IS RIDESHARING?

In Pittsburgh, uberX includes ridesharing, offering the reliability you’ve come to expect from Uber at a great low price. 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 you expect, all driver-partners pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver-partner in Pittsburgh, driver-partners 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-partner’s insurance policy as well as our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver-partner and contribute to the quality with your feedback.
