This offer is different from the much-criticized UberPop, where amateurs are used as drivers. UberX is an extension of the range of Uber Black, which only drivers with a luxury car qualify.
" UberX is a great success in Amsterdam for both drivers and passengers ", said general manager Niek van Leeuwen Uber Benelux. " It's time to let Rotterdam also know now with our new budget option. "
