From an email:
“Uber has some exciting news to announce – we’ve dropped uberX prices 25 percent, making it
51 percent cheaper than a D.C. taxi.
Correction: Our original email stated that we dropped uberX fares to 51% cheaper than a taxi but we checked our math and that was an error. We think uberX rides 40% cheaper than a taxi is still a sweet deal and we hope you do too!
From Eastern Market to Tysons Corner and everywhere in between, uberX is the most affordable ride on the road. The price cut is only for riders – drivers are not impacted by the lower fare.
UberX fares from Dupont Circle to Union Station are now only $9, Foggy Bottom to Arlington are $9, and Columbia Heights to Dulles Airport are $49. So if you and your three friends use Uber’s fare splitting option for an uberX ride from Dupont Circle to catch your train at Union Station, you’re looking at under $3 per rider for the safest, most affordable and reliable ride on the road!
These fares may only last a limited time, but the more you ride, the more likely they’ll last.”
