There’s even space for up to four riders in an UberBLACK, so you can share the ride. Sit back, relax, throw on your coolest sunglasses and imagine yourself in a spy movie.

A convenient and affordable option for big groups, UberXL vehicles are SUVs or minivans that have up to six seats, so you can all travel together—or you can still travel separately and choose to spread out. We’ll leave that up to you.
