What is Uber Select

Some people like to refer to Uber SELECT cars as Uber BLACK…..except the car doesn’t have to be black. It’s a luxurious step above UberX, Yet in most cases - it still won’t break the bank. If you want to ride casually in style, this is the car service for you.

Here are the specifics:

  • There can be up to 4 passengers
  • Costs more than UberX, but less than the black car service
  • Newer car requirements compared to UberX
  • Premium/Higher end sedans only, Must have leather seats


When requesting an Uber SELECT, You can expect to be picked up in a newer BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi, Infiniti and other similar high-end cars. Uber BLACK/SUV cars also qualify as UberSELECT’s - So if it’s a quiet night and you’re a little lucky, You might just get one of those instead.

Uber is a Transportation Network Company (TNC) that allows you to get on-demand private car transportation through their phone app, with the tap of a button - featuring a cashless environment.
