UBER @ Kansas City ~ UBERX ~ UBERSELECT
What is Uber?
Why drive with Uber?
Uber first launched in Kansas City in May 2014 and it wasn’t long before the app caught on in the area. Uber has continued to expand its services to offer more reliable options for riders throughout Kansas City. See below for some important milestones, resources, and how to follow all the happenings of Uber KC!
Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 200 cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.
Riders use the Uber app to set their location and request a ride. The trip request is sent to the nearest available driver. At the end of the trip, the fare is automatically charged to the rider’s credit card on file. Uber handles all billing, customer support and marketing.
Everyday cars for everyday use. Better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi.
uberX is a peer-to-peer ride sharing option that gives riders a low-cost form of transportation.
