Uber is sensitive to the needs of riders with ambulatory disabilities. They’re using technology to make transportation more accessible and reliable for riders.
The innovative company is currently piloting several models in various cities across the country to determine which wheelchair accessible vehicle options best meet the needs of riders and driver-partners. These pilots range from making their technology available to wheelchair accessible taxis to providing wheelchair accessible options through partnerships with commercial providers (e.g. in New York, Houston, Chicago, London, Portland).
By launching uberWAV, Uber offers people requiring wheelchair accessible vehicles the opportunity to request an on-demand ride with the touch of a button. Way to go, Uber!
