In the past year, we’ve moved millions of riders across Portland through options such as uberX, uberXL, uberPEDAL, and UberSELECT. A few months ago, we added TAXI and TAXI WAV to our platform through a partnership with Green Cab that brought greater choice and accessibility to Portlanders. Today, we’re proud to announce two new local companies have joined the UberTAXI platform, Portland Taxi Cab Company and New Rose City Cab Company. We’re working everyday to improve the way that everyone gets from A to B. These collaborations mean more transportation choices for Portlanders that support everyone’s ability to easily move around PDX.
“We’re excited to join forces with Uber to expand opportunity for Green Cab drivers and build upon our shared commitment to offer more transportation choices for Portlanders, including riders with disabilities.” — Tesfaye Aleme, Green Cab
HOW DOES IT WORK?
TAXI and TAXI WAV – like all services on the Uber platform – are completely cashless, enabling riders to book and pay directly through the Uber app.
TAXI WAV can seat up to 3 passengers and 1 wheelchair accessible passenger, and can take oversized luggage. To request a ride, tap TAXI WAV under our ACCESS option in the app.
TAXI is another way of using technology to offer more choice, making life simpler, and keeping Portland moving. We can’t thank you enough for being an Uber rider and supporter. We’re excited to bring more innovation to one of Portland’s most iconic industries and look forward to the ride ahead.
