Premium on call cab service Uber has launched its (relatively) cheaper service Uber X in 3 cities in India. The service is available in New Delhi, Bangalore & Hyderabad and offers a cheaper alternative with the same benefits that the Uber black service offers. The only noticeable difference is the type of car that you will ride in. While Uber black offers a premium fleet of cars, Uber X uses economy to premium economy cars. Here is the rate for Uber X in India:

Base Fare
start with this fare
INR 50
Per Kilometre
distance covered
INR 15
Per Minute
time taken in minutes
Minimum Fare INR 150

And here are some sample fares:

Safdarjung Enclave to Khan Market  INR 181 – 213
Vasant Vihar to Cyber City INR 343 – 395
Airport Terminal 3 to New Friends Colony INR 531 – 612

*Actual fares may vary due to traffic, weather, and other factors.

As you can see, Uber X is considerable cheaper than Uber black and should be a nice option for a more broader target audience. In order to book an Uber, you will need the Uber app.
