Ensuring reliability, affordability and economic mobility in Chennai

February 10, 2017 / Chennai

Every Uber city is different. In the last three years, we’ve served the city of Chennai alongside our driver-partners, and we’ve learned a lot about the choices riders make, and how those choices impact earnings for driver-partners.

In 2016, we went from moving thousands of people to hundreds of thousands. And as the number of people who choose Uber continues to grow, it is exciting to see how we’re serving each neighborhood in Chennai with a greater degree of reliability – with every passing month.

As Uber continues to grow in Chennai, we want to ensure that it continues to be a high-quality platform that seamlessly connects riders to affordable transportation, and drivers to viable economic opportunities. After all, Uber works well when it works for both riders and driver-partners.

So to align closer with these goals, we’re rolling out a minor adjustment to our fares on uberGO and uberX, on 11th February 2017. While this increase takes effect, Uber remains the most affordable and reliable ride in Chennai.




Even with a 50 paise change in ‘ride time fare’ per minute on uberGO and uberX, a ₹10 change in base fare and a ₹1 change in distance fare on uberX, Uber continues to be your most affordable and reliable option in Chennai. And as always, uberPOOL continues to be up to 50% more affordable than uberGO.  With upfront pricing in the app, you will always know exactly how much you need to pay before you take a ride – this way, you get to decide what’s best for you and your budget.
Here are sample uberGO & uberX fares with new prices:

Whether you’re headed to the movies or use Uber to commute daily to work and back, rely on our driver-partners to get you there hassle-free. Our goal is simple – a better, smarter way of getting from A to B that saves you money and enables an economic opportunity for driver-partners.

Uber on, Chennai.
