Kyiv – a city of chestnuts and the Dnieper, the capital of culture and spirituality, Ukrainian cradle of freedom and independence. This morning we’ve got exciting news for you, Kyiv: “Your uberX has arrived”.
The first Uber user in Ukraine – Vitali Klitschko – the Mayor of Kyiv has loved the idea of Uber hitting the streets of the capital.
To make your first days with Uber in Kyiv even more pleasant, enjoy the free rides! We’re giving to each user 750 UAH for 5 trips with Uber (each up to 150 UAH).
Uber is still in testing phase, so availability in Kyiv may be limited for a little while — but don’t worry, we’re working hard each day to get more cars on the road.
“I am happy that Kyiv became the first city in Ukraine, where the new service uberX was launched. We aim to attract innovative projects to the capital, particularly in transport. Today Uber is an international company that is rapidly developing and providing online service in more than 400 cities around the world. Users that already tried Uber in London, Paris and other cities, will be able to navigate around Kyiv now. Uber contributes to safety among other things: the service has an effective rating system that allows evaluating both riders and drivers after each trip; and if the driver’s rating falls below a certain point – they get disconnected from the system. In addition Uber contributes to transparency and legality of business in the city.”
The tariffs for uberX in Kyiv would include: 25 UAH – base fare , 4.5 UAH per km and 0.4 UAH per minute.
Given this, a trip from Sophia Square to Square of Contracts will cost you 40-45 UAH. You can get from Hryshko National Botanical Garden to the National Circus of Ukraine for 52-62 UAH. Your ride from Railway station to Expocenter of Ukraine will cost you 71-88 UAH.
