Accessibility - Transport for All
Convenient, safe and affordable transportation, everywhere for everyone. That’s the big idea at the heart of Uber.
uberASSIST is an option for those who need additional assistance in a standard uberX vehicle – such as older people and those who want an extra hand getting from A to B. uberACCESS is our forward-facing wheelchair accessible product. All vehicles are fully wheelchair accessible and can transport one wheelchair user and an additional passenger.sign up to ride

How to ride in an uberACCESS
Open the Uber app and enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, scroll right at the bottom of the screen to find the ‘ACCESS’ or ‘ASSIST’ option.
If an uberACCESS or ASSIST 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.
Check that the vehicle details match what you see in the app before getting in your uber.
Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.
Exit the vehicle
You'll be automatically charged through your payment method in the app, so you can exit your uber as soon as you arrive.
Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.
