Ride-booking app rolls out luxury rides
A mobile ride-booking app is now offering luxury rides in the Grand Rapids market.
Uber announced this week that it has launched UberSELECT in Grand Rapids.
Uber said UberSELECT is a “step above” its UberX service, which the company has offered in Grand Rapids since 2014.
Riders choosing UberSELECT can expect to be picked up in newer luxury car models, including the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C Class.
UberSELECT cars must be a 2007 model or newer and have leather or vegan leather seats.
The company said UberSELECT cars offer plenty of legroom for up to four passengers.
UberSELECT has a base of $3, $1.75 per mile, $0.30 per minute and an $8 minimum fare.
