Another Uber service, UberXL, is expanding into Chattanooga.
UberX, which is the lowest-cost Uber option, came to Chattanooga inNovember 2014, and UberXL is a new option that offers space for up to six passengers.
“We’re super pumped to announce the arrival of UberXL, the most affordable high-capacity vehicle option in town,” the company said via a prepared statement. “With room for up to six riders, UberXL is spacious, convenient and low-cost. (Think Toyota Highlanders, Honda Odysseys, and Ford Explorers.) It’s great for nights with friends and outings with family.”
The company highlighted sample routes from the ride-hailing service’s XL options, including lifts from Signal Mountain to the Riverfront, from UTC to Track 29 and from downtown to the airport. Click here for estimated prices on those routes.
Also, according to an email from Uber, if users don’t immediately see the UberXL option, they shouldn’t worry.
“Demand for rides will be high, so availability may be limited at times,” according to the email. “Simply check back in the Uber app after a few minutes to try requesting again. Our most reliable coverage can be found here, but is always expanding.”
