You Can Now Take an Uber to Mexico

Great news: Uber’s now expanding the breadth of its service in Southern California and Mexico. Travelers will now be able to take nonstop rides from California to Tijuana — a journey that previously required two separate rides and a border crossing on foot.

Unfortunately, due to local laws and regulations, travelers will only be able to enter Mexico through Uber, and must find another way back since a nonstop return with the ridesharing service is currently prohibited. You can, however, get around this by getting a ride to the Mexico side of the border, crossing on foot and hailing another Uber ride once you’re back on American soil.

If you haven’t signed up for Uber yet, you can join here and get your first ride free (up to $15). You can also save 20% on all rides through April 30 if you use a participating Capital One card, such as the Quicksilver Cash Rewards Card.
