Uber United Arab Emirates is excited to announce the arrival of a more affordable way to get around Dubai: uberX. uberX Dubai hits the roads today, April 17th, as a pilot project in partnership with the RTA, and part of Uber’s commitment to introduce an affordable solution to help our riders get around. During the pilot, only a select number of riders will have access to request uberX. Here‘s everything you need to know about riding uberX Dubai:
- AED 5.00 base fare
- AED 1.37 per Km
- AED 0.40 per min
In the first phase, Uber Dubai will invite selected existing Uber partner drivers to join the uberX pilot, so you are likely to be picked up in a Toyota Previa, Toyota Prado or even a Lexus sedan. Upon the success of this pilot, Uber aims to roll out a more affordable selection of vehicles in order to sustain low fares for everyday riders, while reducing operating costs for partner drivers.
How to request a ride
- Open your Uber app and enter your destination
- Select the uberX vehicle option
- Confirm your pickup location or drop your pin
- Tap ‘Request’ and your uberX will be on its way!
Uber thrives on finding ways to constantly improve and refine their technology to provide safe, reliable, and affordable rides and Uber is excited to continue to work closely with the RTA in line with their innovative vision for transportation in Dubai.
