Today, we are excited to announce a first-of-its kind pilot partnership with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to provide paratransit riders with on-demand transportation options through the Uber app.
This partnership is a significant step in improving our transportation ecosystem. We are honored to work with the MBTA to build innovative solutions for riders across the Commonwealth.
“Partnering with Uber is an excellent opportunity to bring cutting edge services to our customers. Uber’s customized app and willingness to provide smartphones to those who would otherwise be without access demonstrates the power of their platform. We are excited to partner with such an innovative company.”
-MBTA General Manager Brian Shortsleeve
Over the past five years, Uber’s technology has helped expand access to convenient transportation options, while improving mobility and independence for thousands of people across the Commonwealth. We look forward to building on these partnerships across the Commonwealth.
