Uber Assist

We’re committed to developing solutions that support everyone’s ability to easily move around their communities. With Uber Assist, certified drivers give special assistance to riders who may need extra help.

Why ride with Uber Assist

Fast, affordable rides

When and where Uber Assist is available, request rides on demand and fit them around your life, not the other way around.

A helping hand

Every Uber Assist driver has completed an independent training from a third-party organisation about how to help riders into vehicles.

Room for assistive devices

Drivers can help load and unload assistive devices that can fit in the trunk of a standard sedan once folded or disassembled.

How to ride with Assist

1. Request

Open the app and enter your destination in the "Where to?" box. Once you confirm that your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select Assist at the bottom of your screen (a promo code is required in some cities). Then tap Confirm Assist.

If an Assist driver is available and accepts your ride request, you’ll be able to track their arrival on the map in your app.

2. Ride

Please make sure you’re getting into the right car with the right driver by matching the licence plate, car make and model, and driver photo with what’s provided in your app. Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.

3. Exit the vehicle

You'll be automatically charged through your payment method on file, so you can exit the vehicle as soon as you arrive. Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Request a ride, then get in touch with your driver through the app to let them know they’ll be picking up someone else.
