Introducing Uber Assist

July 14, 2015 / Los Angeles

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, Uber Assist.

Uber Assist is designed to provide additional assistance to seniors and people with disabilities. Driver-partners are specifically trained by a third party to assist riders into vehicles and can accommodate folding wheelchairs, walkers, and scooters.


  • 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


Uber Assist pricing can vary by city. Please check your Uber rider app or Uber business dashboard for more information.

Pro Tips

  • After requesting, contact your driver ahead of time with any specific needs.
