Shortly after Uber redesigned its mobile application, it came out with a brand new type of service for Prague called UberSelect. It stands between UberPOP and UberBlack, and provides more quality and comfort. Prices are only around 30% higher compared to UberPOP, so still very reasonable. The main benefits of using UberSelect are:
- Verified drivers with high ratings and great knowledge of Prague routes
- Middle class cars no older than 3 years (Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo)
The price for 1 kilometer is 13,- CZK ($0.50), for 1 minute 4,50,- CZK ($0.18) and a base fare of 30,- CZK ($1.17). This is still cheaper than the regular Prague taxi services (especially over short distances). A full price comparison table including taxi services is available below.
|Price per Kilometer||10 CZK||13 CZK||27 CZK||28 CZK|
|Price per Minute||3 CZK||4.5 CZK||6 CZK||N/A|
|Base Fare||25 CZK||30 CZK||40 CZK||40 CZK|
|Airport to Downtown||300+ CZK ($12.00+)||400+ CZK ($15.50+)||650+ CZK ($25.50+)||550 CZK ($21.50)|
To ride with UberSelect simply open your Uber mobile application and select it from the riding options (it is in the middle) as on the screenshot below.
