Uber X: now available in Johannesburg, too

Uber logoUber, the mobile application that connects individuals with private drivers, has launched the budget version of its service, UberX, in Johannesburg. UberBlack originally launched in South Africa late last year and now operates in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

UberX connects users with drivers of lower-end vehicles (typically Toyota Avanzas or Corollas) rather than the luxury BMWs, Mercedes and Audis used by the UberBlack service and costs substantially less. For example, the minimum fare for UberX is R20, compared to UberBlack’s R50.
