At Uber, we strive to create transportation options that fit everyone’s needs. Today we are announcing a new option that will allow riders needing an extra hand to request safe and reliable rides at the tap of a button — uberASSIST.
uberASSIST is designed to provide additional assistance to seniors and people with disabilities. Driver-partners are specifically trained by Open Doors Organization to assist riders into vehicles and can accommodate folding wheelchairs, walkers, and scooters.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- OPEN your Uber app
- SLIDE the button to the ‘ACCESS’ option at the bottom of the screen
- TAP the ASSIST button
- SET your location and request
- ENJOY your ride
uberASSIST is the same price as uberX.
- After requesting, contact your driver ahead of time with any specific needs.
