What is uberX?

Ride-sharing has revolutionised the way people move around the city. UberX launched in April to give Sydney a safer and more affordable ride and it’s been a huge success. Riders love the reliability, convenience and choice that uberX gives them. Drivers love the technology too and are joining the Uber platform to turn their spare time and empty seats into some extra money for things that matter to them – saving up for medical school or a wedding dress.

For people who live in areas where public transport is not convenient and for people who do not own cars, uberX is a safe, reliable and affordable option (30 – 50% cheaper than a taxi!) meaning they are leaving home more often to shop, wine and dine. Uber also reduces the incidents of drunk driving in the cities where we operate. In Seattle, we estimate that the entrance of Uber caused the number of drink-driving arrests to fall by more than 10%.
