Uber has been a very popular service for many as an alternative to taking traditional taxis.
With the company operating in many cities and countries around the world it was inevitable that Uber international service would be offered…. And now it is with UberPASSPORT!
UberPASSPORT will offer rides from the United States to Mexico.
You can now take an Uber from San Diego to Tijuana but you won’t be able to take it back, at least not at the moment. (For now, you can catch a ride to the border and walk across. Once back in the US you can request an Uber.)
UberPASSPORT is a bit pricier than regular rides.
According to CN Traveler, you’ll pay “$4, plus $0.30 per minute and $2.35 per mile. There is a $20 border crossing fee for passengers, and riders must bring all of their required documentation to cross the border, including a U.S. passport“.
I think that this is a pretty interesting offering from Uber. I wonder if UberPASSPORT could expand at some point to the US/ Canada and other destinations with close borders.
