You may have used Uber in the United States, but did you know that Uber operates all around the world? In fact, Uber operates in hundreds of cities, and is continuing to grow. However, navigating Uber in all these different cities can be difficult, so we are here to give you some tips on how Uber differs from place to place!
In most cities in the US, the following are the guidelines for the services Uber offers, listed from the least expensive option to the most expensive. However, depending on the population of the city and the demand for Uber rides, some of the smaller cities only offer UberX and UberXL, while the more populous cities such as Los Angeles include a majority of these services.
UberPool: share your ride with another party
UberX: standard vehicles for groups up to 4 people
UberTaxi: taxis registered with Uber
UberXL: standard vehicles for groups up to 6 people
UberBlack: high-end cars with professional service
UberSUV: high-end SUVs with professional service
UberLUX: luxury vehicles with professional service
