Whether you’re living in the United States or all the way across the world, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered Uber. The rideshare giant provides rides in over 700 Uber cities around the globe.
Still, Uber isn’t literally everywhere yet. Before you choose the ridesharing app as your reliable source of transportation for your commute or time spent abroad, you’ll want to make sure that your location is included in the Uber coverage map.
In this article, we’ll show you exactly how to do this. We’ll also provide a complete list of all the current Uber markets in the United States conveniently ordered by state or territory.
How to Find Your Nearest Uber City
The exact boundaries of Uber markets were once difficult to find, so the company has recently increased transparency by offering easy access to city pages. These pages display maps that show riders exactly where Uber is supported, which is especially helpful for residents or tourists of cities surrounding a major Uber city. For example, if you live in San Jose, the San Francisco city page clearly shows San Jose is well within the market’s boundaries.
To access your nearest city page:
- Head to the “Find a City” page on Uber.com.
- Scroll down to your country and find your nearest city.
- Look at the map on the right-hand side to see the exact market boundaries.
If you’re located near a market boundary, you can find if your exact location is supported by using the Uber price estimator tool. Enter your location as the pick-up location and any drop-off location within the market boundaries. You’ll get a price estimate if Uber is available in your desired pick-up location. If it’s unavailable, you’ll get a message that says, “Sorry, a price estimate is not available for that trip.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Once you find your Uber market and sign up for the app, you can find rides with Uber across the world. Here are some frequently asked questions to help guide you:
1. Is Uber Eats available in all Uber cities?
While Uber Eats and Uber are available in many of the same cities, these services serve slightly different markets due to regulations and demand. Follow these steps to find out if you can order Uber Eats in your location before you sign up:
- Head to this Uber Eats cities page and find your city or the city closest to you.
- Click on the city name, which should be hyperlinked.
- Enter your delivery address in the bar on the top of the page.
- Click on any restaurant listing. If the banner on the right says “Too far for delivery,” you won’t be able to order Uber Eats in your area. Otherwise, you’re good to use Uber Eats.
2. Can my Uber driver drop me off outside of an Uber market?
In most areas, you can be dropped off outside of your market as long as your trip begins within the city. However, be aware that regulations may differ around the world and that long-distance Uber rides may automatically end after four hours. If your trip isn’t eligible, you won’t be able to request it in the Uber app. That way, you don’t have to worry about not getting to a destination you paid to reach.
3. How much do Uber products differ between Uber cities?
Uber products in United States cities typically include at least UberX. Around the world, Uber products differ widely in price and availability due to regulations and demand. We recommend scrolling down on your city page to see what products are available in your area and using the rideshare company’s price estimator to get an idea of what cost to expect.
Reach Your Destination With Ease
When you sign up for Uber, you can get a reliable ride to and from cities all over the world whether it’s via UberX, Uber Black, or something in between. The leading ride-hailing app operates all around the world — especially in the United States. The best part is they’re constantly working to reach new cities and new airports.
