Uber has announced that fares for their economical UberX service has just gotten even cheaper with a 20% price drop.

The new fares are effective today – however it is only for a limited time. Uber has stated that if they see an increase in ridership they will leave the low rates for a longer period of time.

I’m a huge Uber supporter and I’m thrilled to have this transportation option in Panama City. They provide a safe, comfortable, and convenient service that can’t be found when taking a taxi here. Panama might be one of the few cities in the world where it would be cheaper to get around everywhere using Uber than owning a car – especially now with prices even more accessible.

Here are some examples of estimated fares with the new price drops:


My average Uber rides usually cost $3 – $7 while getting around Panama City (depends on traffic, distance, time of day, etc) so I’m looking forward to seeing my next Uber receipt.

If you haven’t used Uber before now is the time to give it try! Download the app for Android or iPhone and enter promo code UBERPTYLIFE for a $10 credit to use on your first ride.

Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
