People keep asking Uber vs taxi cost – which one is better? Well, there have been discussions previously about Uber vs taxi and which one is generally better. This time, it is about cost in Hong Kong. Uber is well known for being the most reliable ride in cities around the world. Push a button, and you know you’re getting a ride. What many don’t know about Uber is how inexpensive it is to ride uberX. In December last year, Uber HK introduced uberX in Hong Kong, enabling tens of thousands of Hongkongers to experience the Uber magic at a lower cost than taxis. Today, Uber HK is making uberX even more affordable. Uber HK is dropping uberX fares by 20% for all trips starting in Kowloon or New Territories (including Lantau). You’ve got places to be, and this Uber vs taxi cost debate will show you that you can get there for less than a taxi. Pay less for the same Uber experience you love — safe, reliable, and hassle-free. With average arrival times at less than 5 minutes, it’s never been easier to get a ride. Don’t wait — be the first to enjoy Uber’s new prices! The new Uber price table for uberX in Hong Kong clearly shows they are a more affordable option:
|New uberX||Old uberX|
There is a good reason for why these uberX price cuts are a good thing for both the passenger and the driver. Both riders and drivers benefit from the efficiency that Uber’s technology and model bring to transportation. More rider demand and more drivers on the road mean that drivers spend less time waiting around and more time moving people and earning fares. Uber’s experience in hundreds of cities — from New York to Singapore to Taipei — has shown that the boost in rider demand that lower fares bring actually leads to higher driver earnings.
