Today, we’re dropping uberX prices by a further 10% to make getting around Sydney more affordable than ever before.
These prices are seasonal, and will be in effect until August 2.
This means you could be paying up to 50% less than a taxi in Sydney:
Benefit to partner drivers
These prices not only make uberX more affordable than ever. They also mean increased earnings for driver partners. As we see in cities all over the world (including New York and Perth), lower prices increase demand, keeping drivers busier, and earning more for every hour on the road.
How do we do it?
Uber’s technology intelligently predicts demand to help ensure there is always an available driver nearby when you need a ride. This means you get a ride sooner, and our driver partners spend more time with a passenger in their seat. Arrival times over the past 12 months have been constantly decreasing – most pickups in Sydney now occur in less than 4 minutes. You typically have to wait 10 minutes when you book a Sydney taxi.
