The only available feature at this time is Uber Black (http://blog.uber.com/uberbaki), which only registers car holders of BMW, Mercedes and Audi cars. However, the fares are surprisingly good for Baku, which many years before was infamous for sky-high taxi fares. Among the causes of the rapid growth in demand is a drastic drop in taxi fares.
So for example, before you hire a taxi to collect you at an adress that costs 2 manats ($1.5), now it only costs AZN0.55 (30 cents), the charge per mile is now lowered from AZN0.90 to AZN0.34, for every single minutes of travel - from AZN0.20 to AZN0.02.
