uberWAV

Wheelchair accessible vehicles

uberWAV allows riders with accessibility needs to request wheelchair-accessible vehicles (WAV) right through the Uber app. When riders select the WAV option, they're connected with vehicles equipped with ramps or lifts.

How do uberWAV and uberX differ?

uberWAV

  • Requires vehicle capable of loading and securing passengers using wheelchairs.
  • Requires a Passenger Service and Safety (PASS) or similar certification for drivers.
  • Drivers receive uberX, uberXL, and uberWAV trips.
  • uberWAV riders require assistance and need to be strapped in, typically resulting in longer trip times.

uberX

  • Use an eligible 4-door vehicle.
  • No certification required for drivers.
  • Drivers receive uberX trips.
  • uberX riders typically require minimal or no driver assistance.
