UberASSIST: making Nairobi more accessible

January 3, 2019 / Kenya

Moving around your city should be quick and convenient for all. At Uber, we strive to create transportation options that give equal opportunities and access to everyone.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of UberASSIST in Nairobi!  UberASSIST has been designed to provide additional assistance for members of the senior and disabled communities. Driver-partners are specifically trained to assist riders when getting into a vehicle, and can accommodate folding wheelchairs and walkers.  

 


Safe and reliable rides for all
