Uber has now come to Oxford (Mississippi) and Ole Miss, so riders are asking the natural question: How much does Uber cost?
You can do the Uber cost estimate here. But just for fun we calculated some routes of popular spots around Oxford and Ole Miss. Uber begin servicing Oxford and Ole Miss July 1, 2016.
Oxford-Ole Miss Routes/Fares:
*From Proud Larry’s on the Square to Grand Oaks Boulevard: $6-8
*From City Grocery to Wellsgate: $9-13
*From Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to Village Tailor on the Square: $5-6
*From Taylor, MS to Boure: $14-19
Taxi regulations in Oxford had blocked Uber from serving the areas. A new state law that went into effect on July 1, 2016 overrides local laws, however, allowing Uber to operate in Oxford and Ole Miss as of Friday.
Since Uber just started the service may be light on drivers initially. But, more are sure to sign up.
