Changes to fares on Uber in KSA

April 24, 2019 / Saudi Arabia

We know that Uber works best when both riders and drivers enjoy its benefits. A change in recommended fares has been made to support driver partners in making a sustainable living while millions of riders continue to move around their cities affordably.

How will this affect riders?

To reflect these recent changes, trip fares on Uber will increase slightly for some ride options, including UberX, Black, XL and UberVIP in the rides app.

How will this affect driver partners?

It matters to us that the driver partners who help keep KSA moving continue to maintain a sustainable living while driving with Uber. Accordingly, the change in fare prices will provide driver partners with better earnings and encourage them to take more trips, which means lower wait times for riders.

Starting April 25, 2019, updated fares will be reflected in the Uber app in all of the affected cities.
