grandPad + Uber: Creating an Accessible World Through Technology

January 5, 2016 / Los Angeles

For millions of seniors across the country, getting around town safely and reliably is a critical part of living an independent, healthy life. We believe technology platforms like Uber can open up new possibilities for seniors by helping them lead more mobile and independent lives.

Our ridesharing technology offers seniors a safe, easy-to-use, and affordable way to get around. We are committed to providing increased mobility to more people through use of the Uber app, so we teamed up with grandPad for our latest API integration. grandPad’s tablet now empowers older adults to lead more mobile, connected, and independent lives by making it easy and convenient to request a ride at the tap of a button.

Here’s how grandPad has adapted the app:

  • Updated user interface to make the process of requesting a ride even simpler.
  • Pre-set locations for easy pick ups and drop-offs.
  • Bigger font for an easy-to-read experience.
  • Comprehensive data package, allowing users to request a ride and call their driver without a wifi connection.
  • Companion app for senior’s caregiver to  set locations, manage payment, and monitor rides.

Everyday technology helps us solve big problems. When you put it in the hands of those who need it most, it changes lives.
