The original ride sharing company is coming to the Tri-State next year. Uber X will launch in Evansville in early 2017. Evansville will become the seventh city in Indiana to welcome the service. 

Uber connects riders and drivers through a smartphone app. Riders can select a pickup location and they can get a ride in minutes. It's a 24/7, 365 days a year service. Local drivers will be able to use their own vehicles to pick up riders. Potential drivers and their vehicles must undergo a pre-screening process. Riders just need to sign up with their email address, phone number, and payment information. After every trip, riders can then rate their experience.
