Uber has its eyes set on conquering the rest of South Florida outside of Miami with plans to launch in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

The application-based software allows users to hail the company's nearest driver and pay for the service with their smartphones.

Fares from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to South Ocean Drive start at $14 and rides from East Sunrise Boulevard to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park start at $7.

In West Palm Beach, fares from downtown West Palm Beach to Southend are about $12. UberX fares fluctuate based on demand.

The controversial service's first South Florida launch was in Miami-Dade County on June 4, which led to officials ticketing drivers and impounding vehicles associated with the app.
