Baltimore just got another type of taxi service and it’s one that might be worth checking out. UberX is a companion service to Uber Black, which was launched in Baltimore last year as an upscale car service. The way that UberX works is that you request a car from your mobile device and can then pay automatically with a credit card they have on file. And, this new service is supposed to be cheaper than a taxi.
With UberX, you’ll be escorted in a hybrid or a mid-range car and you’ll pay a base fare of $3 plus additional charges per mile or per minute depending on the speed of the car.
It’s certainly worth checking out UberX is you’re a remotely tech savvy traveler who wants a better way to go.
