Our favorite car service has striked again. UberX is now cheaper than a New York City taxi, with prices dropping for 20%. To make a comparison a ride from Grand Central to Financial District used to cost $28 with UberX, a taxi ride would come about $24 and the new UberX fare is $22. From Brooklyn to Bronx and anywhere in between, UberX is now the most affordable ride in the city. Keep in mind these prices are in use only for a limited time. The more you ride, the longer these prices stay in use.
