The Uber Florida family is growing — today, uberX is rolling into Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. They brought a safe, affordable and stylish transportation to the streets of Miami this summer. And now, South Florida riders in neighboring Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach can also enjoy the convenience, safety and reliability of requesting a ride with the push of a button.
WHAT IS UBERX?
In Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, uberX, offers Uber reliability with prices 27% cheaper than a taxi. uberX driver partners have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four passengers. To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all driver partners must undergo Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX partner in Florida, drivers must pass a stringent background check, a driving history check, and ongoing quality controls. All Uber rides are backed by our industry-leading insurance policy, with $1 million of coverage per incident. You’ll also always have the option to rate every driver to ensure the highest quality experience.

If you don’t see uberX at first, don’t worry! Since Uber is still growing, there may be times when availability is limited. Just refresh your Uber app again after a few minutes to request a ride and you’ll be on your way.
