Can I get a handicap ready vehicle through Uber?
The Guru Take
Yes, Uber has Handicap ready vehicles.
Depending on your location and your handicap Uber may have a vehicle or service that fits your needs. Two popular handicap accessible services from Uber are Uber Wav and Uber Assist. Learn more about these two services below. Also for help on how to navigate Uber with other disabilities such as vision or hearing disabilities visit this article here.
Uber Wav stands for Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. Uber Wav cars are vans/suvs that have ramps for motorized or non-folding wheelchairs and/or scooters. The cost of an Uber Wav is the same as the UberX cost for that city plus a $2 fee (fee might differ slightly across markets). Uber Wav is only available in select markets, you can use our fare calcualtor to see if it is available for your trip or check on Uber.com
Additionaly, Uber also has UberAssist which is a service designed to provide additional support to seniors and those with disabilities. UberAssist vehicles cannot accomodate motorized or non-folding wheelchairs but they can accomodate foling wheelchairs, folding scooters, and walkers. UberAssist is the same cost as UberX and is also only currently in select markets.
