What is the difference between UberX and normal Uber?
The main difference between UberX and normal Uber is the costs for riders. Riders using UberX usually pay less than they would with a regular ride, but drivers may still earn less per hour or get fewer trips.
UberX has been a controversial topic recently because many drivers say it’s no longer worth their time to work for these lower rates, whereas passengers are enjoying cheaper rides.
Since launching in 2010, Uber has rapidly grown into one of the most prominent symbols of economic hope and entrepreneurial spirit. Over the course of four years from 2012-2016, at least 500 private technology companies (so called “unicorns”) have gone under… In some countries like India it’s often hard to find an unlicensed taxi driver who will not overprice you…
These days, Uber is not just taking on taxis, but trying to beat out public transportation as well. In the last few years, the company has made efforts to lower prices in some markets so that it can compete directly with public transportation.
Where does UberX fit in?
UberX is a cheaper alternative to the “Premium” UberBlack service. In most cases, you can take an UberX in a normal car, not a luxury sedan or SUV.
Drivers using UberX usually work part-time and there is more of a chance that they will be sharing their ride with other passengers going in the same direction. This might mean you get picked up on the way to your destination.
