How do uberWAV and uberX differ?


  • 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.

*for eligible vehicles


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