Ride For Less: uberX Fares Are Lower Than Ever!

April 4, 2016 / South Africa

Temperatures are dropping and so are our prices! Wherever the winter chill may take you, we’ve made sure uberX is the most affordable way to get you there.


With fares as low as R6/km, you have no excuse to stay indoors – simply tap, ride and let us get you even further for less. From Pretoria to Port Elizabeth and everywhere in between, uberX is your low-cost and reliable ride in SA. It’s about time you explore your city and discover those hidden gems – no maps needed – as we operate in Cape Town, Joburg, Durban, Pretoria and PE!

The same uberX experience you know and love just got better. Check out these awesome sample fares:



You’re probably wondering, how will a reduction in uberX prices affect the way Uber moves? Lower fares will ultimately get more riders on the road, which means more trips for drivers and an increase in driver-partner earnings. The scarcity of winter is often a tough time for driver-partners, and this boosted demand allows them to spend more time moving people around the city.

Like any great deal, these lower fares are for a limited time only, so get riding! The more you ride, the more likely we are to keep prices this low. Our goal is simple: a seamless means of transportation which not only saves you money, but increases earnings for driver-partners.

No matter where you’re headed, we hope you’ll let us take you there for less. uberX fares will be priced at R6/km across all 5 cities from 5pm, 7 April 2016. See you on the road!
