Fast, flexible rides

When and where uberWAV is available, rides are requested on demand, and work around your life, not the other way around. Arrival times are typically better than traditional paratransit services and WAV taxis.

Trips that fit your budget

The price of an uberWAV ride is comparable to uberX, our basic ride option.

Specialized drivers to assist you

Every uberWAV driver has completed a certification course offered by a third party to help you enter and exit the vehicle.

FAQs

  • Can I bring companions in an uberWAV with me?

    Yes. You can bring as many companions as there are seats with seat belts available in the car.

  • Is my service animal allowed in the car with me?

    Yes. It is illegal and against our policy for a driver to not allow your service animal into their car.

Step-by-step

How to ride in an uberWAV

1

Request

Open the app and enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select 'WAV' at the bottom of your screen (promo code required in some cities). Then, tap ‘Confirm WAV.’

If an uberWAV driver is available and accepts your ride request, you’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map.

2

Ride

Check that the vehicle details match what you see in the app before getting in your uberWAV.

Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.

3

Exit the vehicle

You'll be automatically charged through your payment method on file, so you can exit your uberWAV as soon as you arrive.

Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.
