Opportunity for all

Giving people greater access to opportunity is at the heart of our innovations. For members of underserved communities, that means helping to provide opportunity for a source of income or access to getting around on their own terms.

Accessibility matters

Features that allow people to track rides, send text alerts, and request specially equipped vehicles for their needs help make the products available on our apps more accessible.

Independence for older adults

Features designed to enhance senior living

With better mobility options, with or without a smartphone, the Uber platform can help older riders extend their independence and stay connected to friends, family, and healthcare providers.

Providing income opportunities

The Uber platform is a financial lifeline for millions of people around the world. Whether it’s to help fund their business, support their family, or make a little bit extra on the side, Uber makes it easy to make money.

During the first half of 2016, 25% of new earning opportunities in the Paris area came from platforms like Uber.
